I was hoping I had a Red phalarope but this back looks streaked. Can someone confirm red-necked or red?

I'm going to say red-necked due to the streakier back and the needle-like bill. However, I'm far from an expert on shorebirds, so wait for someone better at them!

Agree with Red-necked. The streaked backs help to differentiate from Red which are plain on the back.
