    After all, the story isn't about Killdeer.  The story's about how you used Killdeer surveying to talk to some people politically that you never would have been able to otherwise, and turned some heads (and sowed a few seeds of doubt) doing it.

    But helping Killdeer?  I'm delighted to do it.  If I may be a bit anthropocentric, Killdeer are "golden birds" - they aren't destructive, they are great environmental barometers, they eat all manner of nasty insects and pests, they're very handsome plovers, and they're generally sweet-natured and absolutely full of character.

    If you want, some time, I'll send a PM to you about a couple of my Killdeer stories.  I've had some very interesting encounters with the wee beasties.

      It's not a theadjack when its towards the end of the comments.  I've diaried about killdeer several times and am dying to learn more.
