Killdeer (Charadrius vociferus) nest in busy parking lot protect Found on golf courses or vacant gravell parking lots, this noisy plover is best known for its "broken wing" behavior. If a predator approaches, a nesting killdeer performs a conspicuous distraction display, dragging itself as if mortally wounded, often on one foot, its wings seemingly broken and its rusty tail fanned toward the intruder. This feigning of injury is effective in luring the predator away from the eggs or young, at which point the bird then "recovers" and flies off, calling loudly.
