Good morning folks. As you can see one had one fantastic sun set .
Now for some photos that DesertDale took the last few days of
They nests in shallow marshes primarily in the West and Great Lakes regions. One of few birds to undergo a post-breeding, molt migration. Then they travel to several traditional sites.
They then build-up their fat reserves to make a 54 hour flight to central South America.
Phalaropes are among a handful of bird species that reverse the role of the sexes.
They often mate with more than one male, have more than one nest and, after egg-laying, they leave their families to the sole care of the males.
We are off to have lunch at "Boonies" in Dyer, about 20 miles from our site. Plus get supplies, as the store does not open until noon. So DesertDale said we will have lunch there, as it is Kitfoxgal's to buy. Whoopee! Kitfoxgal
