Killdeer

Close to Mejia I found a pair of nesting Killdeers with three juveniles on farmland 30.12.09. This is one of three places I have found nesting Killdeers the last years. Two of the pairs located their nests on farmland and the other one next to the beach.

I see Killdeer here at the beach in Asia when walking on the boardwalk. They appear to be exactly the same bird I remember back on the farm in Wisconsin.

I guess you are walking around near Lima (Asia) right now. The Killdeer here in Peru is another subspecies than the one from the states but generally they looks the same.
