I've also been watching this killdeer pair last year and again this
year at E. Hill Office Bldg (I work here). I requested that the
landscaping crew does not mow this parking lot island until the chicks
hatch and all the killdeer leave. For added protection, I also put
little flags around the island (to remind the landscapers) and a cone
to keep the parking space beside the nest empty. I guess the killdeer
liked the special arrangement so much last year that they decided this
was the perfect spot again for this year's nest!

Could anyone tell me if a pair of killdeer mate for life? Or at least
for more than one year? I assume this is the same pair as nested there
last year, because the nest is in the same exact spot.
