Alphadello: K is for Killdeer

A killdeer plays "hurt bird" to lure an enemy away from its nest. It limps along, dragging its wings and screaming loudly.

From The First Book of Birds, by Margaret Williamson (1951). Click here to read the book online, or download it free, from the Internet Archive.
