First Killdeer

Photo by Dan Dzurisin, via Flickr 
What: A pair of Killdeer, early arrivals.
Where: Bryn Mawr Meadows Park (just west and a little north of the Walker Art Center, on the other side of Highway 394). The grassy field was animated by about 12 American Robins, bobbing about, tugging worms out of the soil. And then these two Killdeer, who moved with the swift, smooth locomotion characteristic of plovers.
Observer: Abbie, biking to work
Date/Time: Monday, March 12, 8:30 am
Conditions: Overcast, a little hazy and cool
