We just got back from a birding trip to SW Manitoba. I was finally able to coax a pair of phalaropes to slow down long enough to take their photos. Like the Belted Kingfisher, this is a species in which the female is the more colorful of the pair.

Very nice, Al! So, top is female and bottom is male, in this set?

Thank you, Eric. You are correct. And once the eggs are laid, the male incubates them and largely raises the young.

Glad Canada could be of assistance to you in getting these shots Al, they're great. Never heard of this one!

I've always enjoyed travelling in Canada, Ian, and our birding trips are no different. Wilson's Phalaropes are a more inland species; the other two species are of the deep blue sea. Interesting birds, all right. Thanks for you kind comments.

Like Ian, new ones for me, too. This happens a lot with your posts-you do get out among 'em, buddy, to all of our good fortune. Good work , Al!

Thanks, Rog. I usually don't run into them around home, but in spring I can usually find some about an hour west of us and out on the prairies even more of them. Thanks for commenting.
