I was driving under a roadway bridge to get to a mosquito trap site when an adult Killdeer ran in front of my truck and started calling plaintively. I stopped and got out to see what was amiss when I spotted this little guy hunkered down in the dirt with his eyes closed trying to be invisible. I know where the name comes from now, not their call but their babies. The little dears are so cute they kill me!!!! Awwwwww........... Awwwwwwwwwwwww. I'm dying here!
