Birders et al,
I thought i'd pass this along with permission
from Hugh McGuinness
Hugh McGuinness of East Hampton NY discovered a basic plumage RED
PHALAROPE At about 4:15 this afternoon. In NY. He found it at the
south end of Sagaponack Pond (Suffolk Co.).
The bird was best viewed from the pond entrance along Sagg Main Street
just before the beach. The bird was at 40°54'39.20"N, 72°17'8.46"W.
No photo. John Shemilt tried but couldn't get one. The conditions were
miserable this afternoon with a driving rain and a NW wind.
So It pays to keep an I out around as you never know what you might
