I have found trying to capture a Killdeer in flight a difficult endeavor because they fly fast and are hard to track but yesterday I did just that. I was photographing Forester’s Terns in flight over the marshes from the auto tour route at Bear River National Wildlife Refuge when I saw the Killdeer flying my way so I focused on it and created three nice flight shots.
Killdeer are medium sized shorebirds from the plover family that can be found in most of North America. I am fortunate to see them here in many locations including the Bear River National Wildlife Refuge in northern Utah.
It was lovely to head to the refuge and have totally clear skies for a change after all the rain and cloudy weather we have had here in May.
Life is good.
