Killdeer In the Neighborhood

Driving down the street, I saw this unusual looking bird stood on one leg on the sidewalk in my neighborhood. I had to stop to take photos, and thought it was hurt.

After my grocery shopping, I cam back and it still stood there pretty much at the same spot. I google the bird by description and learned that it's a killdeer bird. What a beautiful bird!

I just wanted to make sure that it wasn't hurt so I came closer! It was just fine and hopped on its two legs into the lawn. I had no idea why he/she just stood there for more than half of the day, but for sure it made me happy to see another type of bird in the neighborhood.

Beautiful shots! I wonder if it had a nest nearby? Thank you for stopping by my blog, and wishing you a great weekend.

I’m glad to know your kind heart and the lovely bird which is new to me. I’m also relieved to know that the bird was not hurt.

Sometimes it looks as if the bird has just one leg it's strange that they remain so stable.

What an interesting bird, with the dark rings around its neck. Maybe it knew you were featuring him in your blog and was just making it easy for you, Icy. After all, how many critters get to star in Beyond Zephyr!!!
