A shorebird you can see without going to the beach, Killdeer are graceful plovers common to lawns, golf courses, athletic fields, and parking lots. These tawny birds run across the ground in spurts, stopping with a jolt every so often to check their progress, or to see if they’ve startled up any...
I stand corrected. Thank you very many much, Trevor!
You refer to the head banding… yes, this is clearly observable but I'll
remember the "KILLDEER" (thanks again) by the collars (not 1 but 2!)
easily noticeable from afar. It also shares the orange around the eye.
