Killdeer Encounter

Killdeer Flying
Killdeer Flying

Walking through the 5-acre prairie this afternoon I heard the alarm call of a Killdeer. It sounds just like it’s name and this bird was repeating “Kill Deer, Kill Deer” over-and-over as it flew in semi-circles around me. I suspect it was trying to distract me so that I would not find it’s chicks. I quickly snapped a few pictures and left it alone. The red ring around the large eye is quite distinctive.
