Birds Off The Homer Spit

Sounds Wild: Phalaropes

Hundreds of red-necked phalaropes can be seen from the end of the Homer Spit during their spring and fall migrations. Look for these small birds spinning in circles on the water. They do this to concentrate food. These whirling living tops are a joy to watch. They tend to be in small flocks, which can make spotting them easier.
