Birds of Kentucky: How not to be seen - Killdeer

2013-04-18 - Adair Extension Office, 409 Fairground ST, Columbia, KY - Photo by Ed Waggener. A killdeer was enacting part of its antics to keep predators away from its nest at the Adair County Extension Office, 409 Fairground Street, this past week. The birds have provided entertainment for visitors to the Adair County Farmers Market over the past several years. That market will be moved to larger space on the Hood House lot immediately west of the Extension Office this year. For safety reasons, cars will no longer be able to drive past stalls. But there will be much better parking. The three large shade trees located on the grassy strip the killdeer is claiming have been removed. Other announcements about the hours and season for the Farmers Market on Fairground Street should be forthcoming shortly. So far, gardeners say it looks like a great season, albeit one which is already about two weeks later than 2012. For more on Killdeer, see All About Birds - Killdeer
