What's in a name?

Hello! I have a new Bird of the Week video for you. This time, the featured species is the Killdeer, a bird that is much cuter and far less murderous than that name would imply. Killdeer are not as easy to find as the crows and mockingbirds that I've featured before. You have to go out into a field or wildlife refuge to find them. But, once you get out of the city, they're all over the place!


It's too bad that I never recorded the classic "kill-deer" call. If you want, you can listen to it by clicking here.

And here are the websites where I got my information. Check them out if you want some more facts!
