I got my information about Frankfort being #5 in the standings from Wikipedia while looking up to see what river that was that ran by. Your comment made me wonder: "Donald has lots of spare time to search out and verify facts he reads on people's blogs?" You need a dog :)

Hi John (Sinbad's Dad) -- oh, the can of worms has just been opened… Tip of the iceberg here--Wikipedia vs the WWW.

Not a killdeer. Maybe a whimbrel? But definitely not a killdeer. Lovely shot, though.

Thanks ZOOMIE -- yes, I think (according to Google Images) you (with Whimbrel) are correct. Don't know why I assumed it was a Killdeer--sometimes at 4:30am I just make stuff up and hope nobody notices (LOL).
