A Kamchatka mew gull from Siberia recently appeared on Nantucket, along with a little gull, black-headed gull, and red phalarope
. They came on the heels of a MacGillivray's warbler (a western species) in Lakeville, a Ross' goose in Ipswich, and a white-winged dove in Boston.
He manages to humanise the animals and make their day-to-day routines similar to that of their human counterparts: from the wild wolves that hunt in packs like the Geordie Shore girls on a night out, to a band of red phalarope
birds doing their amusing battle dance like Frankie Cocozza after a few too many in a nightclub.
"You can check out birds that are born and bred here," says Sage, like the red phalarope
. Up in Barrow, it's red during the breeding season.
Shearwater Journeys runs day trips (7:45 to 3 P.M.) into the bay; you might see albatross, red phalarope
, tufted puffin, or thousands of storm petrels; plus blue or humpback whales, fur seals, Dall's porpoise.

Only seven species occurred in more than 25% of the clusters across the entire study area (American golden-plover, semipalmated sandpiper, pectoral sandpiper, dunlin, long-billed dowitcher, rednecked phalarope, and red phalarope

was the most abundant breeding shorebird on the Great Plain of the Koukdjuak, southwestern Baffin Island (pers.
White-rumped sandpiper (Calidris fuscicollis) and red phalarope
(Phalaropus fulicarius) were the most abundant shorebirds breeding at Creswell Bay, and Lapland longspur (Calcarius lapponicus) was the most abundant breeding passerine.
