White-rumped Sandpiper 4
phalarope first seen sleeping, then awake sitting and preening, finally swimming and eating near sandpipers, driving one sandpiper away from its feeding area. On south side of point of land in pond to extreme left of parking area, 100' from point. Observed for 28 minutes, still there when I left the area. Touch of reddish color on sides of face/neck, yellow on base of bill. Sunny, bird not very active, excellent views.
