I’ve seen and heard Killdeers fly by in pairs and small flocks several times in past weeks.  I finally sighted a pair of these pretty plovers on the ground.

Their bold red eye-ring is quite stunning.

While the above one foraged away from me, I captured the other Killdeer preening, giving a glimpse of its bright orange-buff rump that is usually only visible during flight.
