Killdeer, March 21, 2018

ABC Wednesday, Wild Bird Wednesday, and Wednesday Around The World
K is for Killdeer - an American Plover

Pickwick, Tennessee, USA, February 9, 2018
The Killdeer, Charadrius vociferous, is the most common plover in North America, having a range all across the continent except for the extreme northern parts. Adults have two dark breast bands; juveniles have only one. Killdeers build their nests on the ground, and the chicks are able to move out of the nest almost immediately after hatching.

Look for them in open grasslands and fields. They seem to be especially fond of golf courses!

Have a wonderful day!
