May 2000: Wilson's Phalaropes, Alviso

Wilson's Phalarope

By the end of the month, I may or may not have added this American phalarope to the Santa Clara list. By June 2 I was certain:

“Seven of ‘em (four female, three male) right up by the shore at the Environmental Education Center, quite unconcerned by my presence. Unlike the avocets, which disapproved strongly.

“Also three very distant American white pelicans and a couple of black skimmers on the island in mid-lagoon. Would the eared [black-necked] grebes have young by now? There were a couple of plain ones in the company of breeding-plumaged birds.”
