Wings Amid A Puddle | Killdeer | New York
Killdeer have always been a challenging shorebird for me to photograph.
They are small.
Always in motion a Killdeer is.
Killdeer run around the shoreline at a pretty good pace compared to other shorebirds.
And Killdeer take off and fly frequently. Not always moving far off but just enough movement to make me miss a shot.
Killdeer are always alert.
There is no sneaking up on a Killdeer.
Killdeer also have loud sharp calls. Especially if they are disturbed. The Killdeer will call out loud and clear.
Then the Killdeer sound the alarm to all the other wildlife around you and spook all the animals.
