Killdeer

You’ll see a lot of Killdeer in Louisa County during the summer. They like gravel roads and parking lots and will nest right next to the road. They have a loud piercing call that sounds like kill-deer or dee-dee-dee. I hear the latter more often.

Most Plovers commute between the Artic Circle and the Gulf of Mexico. Killdeer summer in the continental US and Canada. During the summer they are the only Plovers to be seen, however you should like twice during the sping and fall, since other Plovers may be passing through.
