Saturday Bird Watch

Spotted in my yard this a.m., a momma killdeer and two little chicklets.

Thanks for this, I'm not that familiar with killdeer and I think it answers my question about a bird sighting I made a few years ago. It must have been a killdeer.

Also, if I haven't told you already, I love your icon. It's quite beautiful.

PJ -thanks! I had to look this up to be sure. I was calling it a kiwi, but somehow knew that wasn't right. Thanks for the icon compliment too. It's an old Tuscaloosa postcard - what else? would it be! ha :)
Gena - they were VERY cute. I wish the quality was better, but this was the best I could do from far away. I was trying hard not to scare them off.
