Killdeer

Charadrius vociferus
A medium sized plover 10 1/2 (27cm). Adults have a brown back and wings, a white belly, and a white breast with two black bands. The rump is tawny orange. The face and cap are brown with a white forehead. They have an orange-red eyering.

Their breeding habitat is open fields or lawns, often quite far from water, across most of Canada, the United States, and Mexico. They are migratory in northern areas and winter as far south as northern South America.

These birds forage for food in fields, mudflats, and shores, usually by sight. They are mainly insectivores. Common on grassy fields and shorelines and may form loose flocks.
