Birders Without Borders
24 June, 2014
Range / Habitat:
Breeds on tundra in the circumpolar Arctic. Winters at sea in a variety of spots near the equator.
Small wader, smallest of the phalaropes. Small, needle-like bill and slender neck. Brown upperparts, with some gold, white breast and chin. Rufous horseshoe-shaped collar.
A ubiquitous bird in small pools of water in Iceland in the summer, but surprisingly difficult to photograph.
