The Killdeer has a migratory population which breeds in northern USA and southern Canada and migrates during the northern winter to Central America, the West Indies and northern South America. There is also a resident population in both the West Indies and Peru.

It is a large plover and the only one with a double breast band in its range. The orange-brown rump and upper tail are not visible in this photo.
