Killdeer nesting areas: Over the past several years, Killdeer have made their nests in our garden. Killdeer spend much of their life on the ground and are easy to overlook. If we see any nests, we'll cordon off the area to give these plovers time to raise their young. For more information about Killdeer, see https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Killdeer/id
