Red-necked Phalarope Phalaropus lobatus breeds in the Arctic regions of North America and Eurasia. It winters pelagically. Bird i-Witness has only four recent records, three near Sabak Bernam in 2005 and one in Teluk Air Tawar coast in 2007.
An immatured bird was found in a pond in Malim Nawar on 16 Oct 2010. It was seen again on the next day and also on 19th Oct. It is probably an immatured bird which like young kids, are prone to losing their way.
