Red-necked Phalarope (Phalaropus lobatus)

Appearance:

Can only be confused with other phalaropes, due to swimming behaviour. Juveniles and winter plumage birds can be mistaken for Red Phalarope, but bill is much more needle-like and neck and body more slender. Juvenile birds with prominent buff stripes on back, and first winter birds with dark fore-crown (see Red Phalarope). Adult winter with white stripes on back, as opposed to Red Phalarope's uniformly grey back.

Sound:

Short and sharp "teck", sometimes repeated to form trilling series. Also a mewing, nasal "veeoo".
