An adult Killdeer leads two, three or four chicks on a walk in three new Birdorable designs. Killdeers are plovers and this is our totally cute Birdorable version of a parent Killdeer with its baby birds. A great design for moms and dads and bird lovers!

Birdorable Killdeer with Chicks

Killdeer are known and get their name from their ‘broken-wing act’ which they use to distract predators from their nests. This involves the bird walking away from its nesting area holding its wing in a position that simulates an injury and then flapping around on the ground emitting a distress call. The predators then think they have easy prey and are attracted to this seemingly injured bird and away from the nest. If the parent sees that a potential predator is not following them, they will move closer and get louder until they get the attention of the predator.

Birdorable Hoopoe

The Hoopoe is a striking crested bird that lives across Europe, Asia and Africa. They are named for their call, 'oop-oop-oop'. At rest their crest lays flat but in our extra cute Birdorable version, the crest is erect and expanded. This Hoopoe is the 78th bird species to be added to Birdorable. Great gifts here for fans of this beautiful bird.
