Picking a WIPH out of a Crowd

[The flyby Wilson's Phalarope at the state park yesterday evening (third from left), with Lesser Yellowlegs, by Tom Johnson. Tom reports: "As I was getting out of the car a sizeable group of Lesser Yellowlegs was flying off Bunker Pond calling, with one similar sized but skinnier, very pale shorebird among them. The paleness of the phalarope, even the translucence of the wings (evident in the photos), was really obvious in comparison to the darker yellowlegs. - tbj" Click to enlarge.]
