Friends, 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

lovely shot! why is this bird called ‘Killdeer’?
when it calls, it cries kill-deer in a high pitched voice, thanks for your comments, MJ
Lovely capture, thanks for sharing 🙂
