I was fortunate enough a few months ago to come across this cooperative Killdeer. It was in the evening, at a time when this part of the bog is heavily shaded. Those photos were okay, but there’s just no substitute for good, clean morning light. I knew I wouldn’t see this curious little bird again, let alone in that glorious light of the morning. The next morning I went to the same spot and you just wouldn’t believe who walked right up to me- it was that same Killdeer from the previous day! I know, I couldn’t believe it either! Back and forth he strutted for ten minutes, and closer and closer he came as I snapped away excitedly! It’s not every day I come across a cooperative Killdeer.
