(20140607) Saturday in the blind Part deux
Just as we were wrapping up our Blind visit these two Phalaropes provided us with some entertainment. These birds are amond the exceptions in the bird world where the female is actually the more brilliantly plummed. He prepares the nest, gets her to lay the eggs, then she is off to the next fella, while he takes care of raising hte babies.
