Aaah, I'm so glad I came across your post. I always see these birds in parking lots and along roadsides in the summer but had no idea what they were.
According to my Peterson field guide killdeer spend all year in Southwestern Ohio (I'm from Cincinnati, hoo'ray
)...but I swear that I only see them in the summer. (It just now occurred to me that I could have looked this up a long time ago...) I'd love find a nest sometime; those eggs are lovely!
Thanks for sharing!
