Brooksville Water Treatment Plant - May 6, 2014

I stopped here today because a Wilson'd Phalarope was reported yesterday.  I had never seen that bird before, so I thought I should see if I could find it.  There were so many birds there at a great distance, and I wasn't exactly sure what it looked like.  I photographed all the birds I thought it could possibly be and looked through when I got home.  Sure enough, I found him.  I emailed another birder the photo to confirm.  I was also glad to get the yellowlegs in the photo to compare, since they are often confused.  The phalarope is on the far right.  Also saw several black necked stilts and many speceis of sandpaper, too small to identify in the photos.
