Hello
Here's a Kildeer with its distinctive double breast bands. Its bright reddish-orange rump is visible in flight (see workshop). Common in meadows, farm fields,airfields, lawns; also on shores and riverbanks. Feeds on insects worms,grubs. Nest on openground, ussually on gravel. Slikked actor; will feign a broken wing or leg to lead intruders awy from the nest. It got its name from its piercing call "KILDEE..."

Bonjour
Voici un Pluvier kildir cartactérisé par son collier double ( simple chez le poussin) et par le cri sonore et perçant «kill-di...». Son croupion orange est voyant en vol (voir le Workshop). Très commun en milieu ouvert et sur les rivages. Niche au sol souvent sur le gravier. Très talentueux pour feinde l'aile ou la patte brisée pour éloigner les intrus du nid. Se nourrit principalement d'insectes.

Salut Serge

Excellente cette photo en close-up (aussi celle du WS) du Pluvier kildir,
avec un excellent POV à son niveau aussi le cadrage en laissant
une bonne espace libre en avant du sujet, superbe focus netteté
et détails, tout petit catch-light mais qui rend la photo encore meilleure,

TFS
