Happy Monday everyone!
I am sharing the cute Killdeer for this week's wild bird post. It is a medium sized plover. They are considered shore birds but can live far from the water. It is named after it's shrill wailing call.
The Killdeer have a brown back and wings with a white belly. Their bill is short, black and thick.
They have a round head and flesh colored legs. They forage for food in fields and mudflats, they eat insects.
They can nest on dry gravel with little or no vegetation around.
The Plovers are some of my favorite birds, these Killdeer's have the sweetest faces. You just have to love them, lol. I hope you enjoyed my photos and post.
As always I thank you for stopping by and as always I appreciate your comments.
