Killdeer

CHARADRIIFORMES for those who insist on using Latin.  I took the photos of these while waiting for the eagles to show.

This bird relies on deception to protect their young.  The most common ruse is to pretend to struggle with a broken wing to lure predators away from their young.

    Beautiful photos of a beautiful bird. I saw them once in Canada.

    Thank you, they’re quite common here and in North America, generally.
