Killdeer Feeling Frisky

Killdeer, members of the Plover family, are commonly seen in our area at this time of year.  Over the past several days I observed several in the gravel parking lot of the Lilypons Water Gardens, chasing each other around and putting on displays that I can only assume were mating behavior...













If you live somewhere that has these interesting birds it would be well worth your time to watch their antics and enjoy their "kill-deer" calls.
