Wilson’s Phalarope

Phalaropus tricolor

The Wilson’s Phalarope nests furthest south of any other phalarope species. The high latitude limit for these bird’s nesting is northern Alberta and southern Northwest Territory of Canada. I’ve met these birds on their breeding grounds at Crowley Lake California and Malheur NWR in eastern Oregon. Winters are spent as far south as saline lakes in the Andes and southern South America.
