Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Widespread shorebird, often nests near human development and far from water: parking lots, school roofs, road edges and other spots with bare gravel. Two black bands across breast set it apart from other plovers. Vocalizes frequently, giving loud, whinnying "kill-deer" call.
