Killdeer in flight by gregster09 Killdeer in flight by gregster09
The Killdeer is a shorebird that is often seen around urban areas. They often nest in fields and parking lots. Caught this one as it was flying by me, probably to distract me from its nest or chicks.

Love these birds...one nested in the gravel parking lot outside our apartment back in TX, and some bratty boys stomped on the eggs right before they were about to hatch. ;_;

I used to have a pet Killdeer when I was younger. She was so tame. <3 This is a great shot that brings back many memories for me.

Really sharp, great composition. I like the bareness of the background and the way that the colour of the eye really stands out from the surrounding image.

One of my long-time favorite birds. They nested all around where i grew up, and i loved watching the chicks when they hatched.
