THE RED-NECKED PHALAROPE.

Length, 6.5 ; wing, 4.4 ; tail, 2.25 ; tarsus, 0.75 ; bill, 0.75.

Bill dusky ; irides brown ; feet yellowish-green.

Forehead white ; crown, occiput, and nape dusky-brown ; the back, scapulars, and two middle tail-feathers the same, but the feathers broadly edged with whitish ; all the lower parts white, passing into pale-ashy on the sides of the breast and flanks.

In summer plumage the back and scapulars are deep black, with reddish edges ; the wing-coverts black with a white band and the neck ferruginous.

The Coot-footed Stint or Red-necked Phalarope occurs in the cold weather in the Kurrachee Harbour and adjacent sea-coast.

I met with it at Chaman, South Afghanistan, where it must have been migrating.
