Area Birders, 

Last night at the VA High-Grundy game, I heard what I thought was a Killdeer. 
But I paid no attention to it and got suited up for the game. But on the way 
back in from our pre-game warmup, I saw a flock of 10-15 of them. Killdeer. 
Keep in mind that this is at about 7 p.m., well after dark. I thought this was 
very strange. 

Also, on the way home from football practice last week I saw a robin sitting on 
the guardrail at the Grundy YMCA . It confused me. Why would a robin be out 
that late after dark? Can anyone help me?

Oh yeah, one more thing. Last Thusday (at football Practice again) I saw two 
birds that were about the size of a dove or something similar. The way the sun 
shone on them they looked yellow. The closest thing I can think of is a 
meadowlark. Can anyone help me?
