Hi, all -
    The "Killdeer on the Roof" (apologies to Norman Jewison and Sholom Aleichem 
:-) were instead on the ground today. Somehow, the parents had gotten their 
"Killfawns" (thanks, Jim!) off the roof. So much for "tradition." The birds are 
too small to have flown off on their own, so I'm guessing the parents carried 
them off in their beaks. I suppose they could have been a different Killdeer 
family, as I have seen at least two pairs around. I haven't seen any on the 
roof since that one day, so I don't know what else to think.
    Also, I heard a Prairie Warbler as I was leaving. I heard one in my 
neighborhood last week, too.
