More info on past blow-ins of red phalaropes:

While they can occur on sewage ponds, they also may be found in large
puddles in fields, etc.

And at least many of them tend to stick around until they are, gulp,
eaten by predators.  (This is evidenced by small piles of
light-colored feathers.)

Given that no one has reported any yet on obol, it's possible
conditions weren't right with this storm.  Whatever right is.
