killdeerFriends, this little bird is the Killdeer, who builds a nest on the ground.  If you venture near, the bird will put on an act looking like he has a broken wing and will try to lead you away from the nest.  Here he stands in a puddle in Crex, no doubt looking for a nesting spot.  Leaving South Dakota behind today and going to North Dakota. til Tomorrow MJ
