Killdeer range

The Killdeer is a member of the plover family. This bird can be found near water, in mudflats or in fields. It lays its eggs on open ground, where as soon as the young can walk, they leave their nest shortly after hatching. The Killdeer is known to feign injuries to draw predators away from their nest and young. These shorebirds spend their winter months in the southern tropical countries. It has been seen as a migrant in Cuba.
