Killdeer March 3, 2013 | clairemeyler The Killdeer. I don’t know why it has such a vicious name. It’s not such a big bird. I like the shadow in the background, though. Share this:TwitterFacebookLike this:Like Loading... Related

I love your artwork, Claire. I’m so excited to see you revisiting your bird drawings again. Btw the cute and skittish killdeer got it’s name because scientists thought their call sounded like it was trilling “kill-deer.” Silly, right? http://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/killdeer/sounds
Yay! You want to be my official bird researcher? Or you can just cheerlead. I like that role, too.
PS: birds might be up in an exhibition soon! Details to be posted once we’re agreed on dates, etc. yay!
