  1. wilson's phalarope

    Wilson's Phalarope is a small wader bird species that belongs to the sandpiper family (Scolopacidae). Distinguished by its slender body, long, thin neck, and sharp beak, this bird species is unique for its reverse sexual dimorphism - the females are more brightly colored than the males. They are found in parts of North and South America, primarily in freshwater habitats. Named after the Scottish-American ornithologist Alexander Wilson, the diet of this bird mostly consists of southpaws and bugs. They are also known for their unusual mating system, where females compete for males, and then leave the males to incubate the eggs and care for the young.
