Very nice capture
It looks like a lapwing
Thank you Chris – I had never seen this bird before.
I was thinking it was some sort of plover but believe it may be a killdeer based on the “Birds of North America” website. This is the killdeer page I am ONLY going by that website though, I don’t know as much about American birds as I do about European ones. I aim to learn though and my new mission is to see at least one new (wild) species each time I go to the States. (it counts if I have seen them in zoos here and then see them for the first time in the wild over there!) Anyway hope the website helps :-)
Looking at your comments, lapwing and plover are similar, all in the species Charadriidae and yes killdeer is indeed a member of that family. I stand now ever more certain that it is a killdeer but yes in a broad sense “lapwing” would not be inaccurate, I believe. :-)
