General information about Killdeer - Black and White Striped Bird :

Black and White Striped Bird
Killdeer are shorebirds.
Killdeer are a type of plover bird.
The infant birds are able to move around right after hatching.

The killdeer frequently uses a "broken wing act" to distract predators from the nest.

Killdeer nest on open ground, often on gravel. They may use a slight depression in the gravel to hold the eggs, but they do not line it at all, or line it only with a few stones.

They are migratory in northern areas and winter as far south as northern South America.
They are often seen in parking lots and urban areas, bobbing their heads up and down behind gutters and curbs. They spend a lot of time, running on the ground, and croutching flat in the corners and crevices.
