Cochise Lake-Whimbrel

While out birding at Cochise Lake in Willcox, AZ a flock of 17 Long-billed Curlews and this one Whimbrel flew in.  As always, Cochise Lake, produced some great birds.  Other than the Whimbrel, at least 16 Willets were a surprise.  The numbers of phalaropes was high; there were about 135 Wilson's and a couple Red-necked Phalaropes.  A flock of 6 Lesser Scaup was also a nice addition to the list.

Thanks, Richard!

I'm glad it has stuck around for other birders to see.
