Killdeer At Detweiller Marina

Killdeer Bird

First Killdeer Bird I have ever seen at Detweiller Marina. There are a few at Banner Marsh in the summer. They have a wonderful call that sounds like they are saying "killdeer". They move quickly on the ground much like a roadrunner.

A killdeer nest is about 3 feet from the road in front of our house. We live in a rural KY area on a dead end road. Watching the "injury" act is amazing. She has 4 eggs and we are most anxious to watch the newborns soon. They are truly something.
