Red-Necked Phalarope?

For five days five of these birds swam in our pond. They flew with the swallows, looking very much like them until they settled on the surface of the water and swam with the ducks. My friend Tony correctly guided me to the Phalarope. What I am wondering about is if this is a red-necked or a Wilson.

  1. Francis and Leigh think it's a red-necked because the red goes all the way up to the eye on the lower picture.
