Flocks of killdeer are enjoying the Garden's meadows. I've seen them over the past several days, hopping, calling, and flying around.

Killdeer are plovers, but not shorebirds. They frequent lawns, meadows, and fields, and their distinctive behavior makes them unmistakable.

Look for an attractive bird with two brown neck bands and a white breast. And listen for their calls.
