Dear Kitty. Some blog

This is a video of a red phalarope (as it is called in North America; called grey phalarope in Europe). This bird is in winter plumage.

D. Greydanus made the video on 14 December 2013 in Andijk, the Netherlands. These birds are in the Netherlands only in winter, and even then, rarely.

Photos of this species in its more colourful summer plumage in Svalbard in the Arctic are here.
