I encountered an adult Killdeer doing the distraction display [on 6/26 at the Sweetwater Wetlands]. I looked around carefully as I knew there were likely young in the area. Killdeers are precocial birds - their young have their eyes open at hatching and are capable of locomotion soon after hatching. I soon discovered two of the young with this little guy swimming away from me.
