A Pair of Killdeer

My husband and I went for an evening drive. We usually stop at Ingram Hill for the long view to the mountains. It was close to sunset.

Two killdeer were busy in the gravel.

Killdeer are a vocal bird with a loud voice.

They don’t build nests in trees or shrubs.

They do place small rocks in the gravel for their nesting area.

These two didn’t try to draw our attention.

They probably used the color around them for protection. It was close to sunset and the light fading.

We went back the next night and there wasn’t a killdeer to see or hear.
