Interesting bird. I like the rule of thirds in this photograph - I wonder where they are heading.

These are killdeer, right?

I have photographed some of these most intriguing birds by my house.
Love them.

sheila,
i am really not certain. they are similar but not exact like photos of killdeer that i have seen online. maybe it's in the same family. it's a good thing i don't have to know what they are in order to phototgraph them.

They're Black-necked Stilts (Himantopus mexicanus). I'm always excited to see them return to the refuge.
