My latest find is a Wilson’s Phalarope at Bald Knob National Wildlife Refuge. Here’s a random, but neat fact about the Wilson’s Phalarope: AllAboutBirds.org reports that, unlike most birds, that female phalaropes leave their mates once they’ve laid eggs (they almost always lay exactly four eggs each time). The males end up raising the young while the females look for other males to mate with.

Here’s some other bird photos I took that I just like.
