On the Road in Texas - Killdeer in Flight

No postings from the Colvin Run Habitat this weekend, as I am visiting my daughter and her husband in Frisco, Texas. To say the landscape is different would be, well, an understatement.
Nevertheless, I am on the lookout for interesting backyard wildlife. One bird never observed in the Habitat, but which I enjoy seeing in Texas is the killdeer, or as my dad used to say, a kill-dee. This bird has a distinctive call, which like other birds is simply its name – kill-dee. Sorry for the poor quality of the photos, but I was unable to get very close to this guy.

The killdeer is found in the Mid-Atlantic States, but has just not been seen in the Habitat. Posted by Picasa
