red-necked phalarope (Phalaropus lobatus)

Description Phalaropus lobatus

Date February 2003

Author Dave Menke (1946–2011)

The red-necked phalarope (Phalaropus lobatus) is a small wader. The English and genus names for phalaropes come through French phalarope and scientific Latin phalaropus from Ancient Greek phalaris, "coot", and pous, "foot". Coots and phalaropes both have lobed toes. The specific lobatus is New Latin for lobed, for the same reason. This bird was described in 1750 as the "Coot-footed Tringa". This phalarope breeds in the Arctic regions of North America and Eurasia. It is migratory, and, unusually for a wader, winters at sea on tropical oceans. Order: Charadriiformes, Family: Scolopacidae, Genus: Phalaropus, Species: Phalaropus lobatus (Linnaeus, 1758).
