Fine art illustration of a Killdeer (Charadrius vociferus.) The illustration is available in black and white or color.
The Killdeer was completed on 12.6.09. The plaintive call of these birds was part of growing up in Minnesota. Of course, they are famous for being able to lead predators away from their nest as they pretend to have a wing that’s broken. I’m glad that I can also see them in my adopted California too. The drawing is based on a photo by the talented wildlife photographer ‘Photo Patty.
