Image Description: Grey Phalarope
Image notes: Grey Phalaropes have the same strange breeding habits as the Red-necked Phalarope. The females actively chase the males. When mated the male broods the eggs and takes care of the young till fledged while the females gather together to feed and preen. They are said to winter in the plankton-rich waters off West Africa.
