    Nice photo! That’s a Red-necked Phalarope (insert Redneck joke here) a type of sandpiper.
    They are pretty rare in Seattle – not rare on a state-wide level, just here locally.
    Can you tell us when you saw this bird Machel? And thanks for sharing your beautiful photos. Your fungi pics are magical…

      Machel did caption it “sandpiper” when she sent it – but I have learned to be vague about all but the most obvious birds since there are so many of you experts out there! – TR

    I’m not going to dis rednecks. On the contrary, I commend anyone that is generous with their money…
