Late this afternoon Ian Hunt saw a juvenile
Red-necked Phalarope at Creve Coeur Lake in St. Louis County. He parked in the
back(Creve Coeur Mill Rd.), walked right toward a blind, and the bird was in a
small mudflat ten feet from the blind.
This is the first Red-necked Phalarope sighting for
the St. Louis Area that I'm aware of.
