K is for Killdeer

I bet you all knew I would choose killdeer. I also like kinglet and kingfisher, but my pictures of them are pretty weak.

Killdeer are the most widespread and well known of the American plovers. They are found in fields and parking lots, as well as wetlands. Although many species of birds pretend to have a broken wing to lure predators from their nest, Killdeer are the most commonly seen doing this distraction display.
