I was shopping on Saturday afternoon in the Strip District when I heard calls of a killdeer. I looked toward the direction of the calls for a mimicking starling but instead caught sight of a flying bird that I expect was actually a killdeer. I had more of an "impression" than sighting but I did see longer legs, the longer (not stubby) tail... and a bird of the proper size and shape.
These birds hold a fond memory for me because I used to see them in the cemetery in Johnstown, PA (Richland Cemetery) when I was growing up.
