Killdeer Sighting

Saw a Killdeer today! They were out in the pasture chillin' with the horses. I've seen Killdeer once before (last time I saw one with chicks!!), but this time my mom got a picture.

I also got to hear their calls for the first time today. It sounded very much like the one recorded here:

Killdeers' calls are very interesting, and sound somewhat like an insistant, ascending whine. The flock I saw wasn't too talkative, but a couple would hollar now and again.

Anywho, a fun and unexpected find for the day.

Until next time,

Happy Birding!
