A recent video uploaded by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service shows a group of spinning Wilson's Phalaropes in Quivira National Wildlife Refuge, Kansas.
The USFWS post notes, "there is a lot of this type of action going on at Quivira lately. Estimates of Wilson's Phalarope numbers are several thousand, and the birds can be seen in areas of water both large and small. You might get dizzy just watching!"
These birds create whirlpools by spinning in small, rapid circles.
Then they feed on the small insects and crustaceans that rise to the surface.
Gender roles are also somewhat unusual within this species. According to the National Audubon Society, "Females are larger and more colorful than males; females take the lead in courtship, and males are left to incubate the eggs and care for the young."
