Killdeer (baby)

Charadrius vociferus

Description:

A white underside with a brown back and there are two black rings around the neck. Saw about 20 babies this day, and they were pretty much the cutest things I have ever seen!

Habitat:

Running all over the road in a marshy area. Anytime there was a momma killdeer, you were almost guaranteed to see little babies too. Had to drive slow until they ran off the road to avoid running over them.

They are super cute indeed, but picking them up is illegal so you shouldn't do that :)
