Red-necked Phalarope at Lake Arthur, Butler County, PA
 
Lake Arthur has been the place to be in western Pennsylvania this season for rare shorebirds. First were these Willets on May 1, and now this male Red-necked Phalarope on May 16. As is often the case with this species, particularly in spring, this bird was pretty much fearless as it foraged just a few feet away at the Bear Run boat launch at Lake Arthur. Too easy...
