Summary

The Red Phalarope commonly breeds on the Arctic Coastal Plain of Alaska, but is moreabundant west of the Colville River primarily near the coast (Johnson et al. 2007). In Alaska, thisspecies almost exclusively nests in wet/moist polygonal or marshy tundra and are dependent onaquatic food sources for much of their diet (Tracy et al. 2002). Red Phalaropes are the mostpelagic of the three phalarope species and spend most of their winters in subtropical and tropicalseas near areas of nutrient upwelling (Tracy et al. 2002). Current population estimate of theNorth American population is 1.25 million with a suspected declining trend (Morrison et al.2006).
