"vociferous" in their name is SO appropriate!

(Oops, I mean "vociferus" - bad typo!)

Getting close to nesting season out there. I had a killdeer give me the injured wing treatment at Salt Point in May a few years ago, and it didn't take long to find the beautifully camouflaged nest (while treading very carefully of course).

Hi, Geoff! Killdeer are quite vocal, too -- so I wouldn't be surprised if you hear them in Florida, along with the kingfishers.
