FAR FROM SHORE - I'm used to seeing Killdeer on the seashore, so I was surprised to see this one in a freshly harvested corn field in Knox County, Indiana. The field guide confirmed that Killdeer are a widespread shorebird that often nests near human development and far from water.

INDIANA DOES SKIES - "Photo clouds" over the Lincoln Memorial Bridge across the Wabash River in Vincennes, Indiana. A young Abraham Lincoln crossed from Indiana to Illinois here on his journey from Kentucky.

GREBE IN INDIANA - I'm still in Indiana and making pictures here during my visit. I spotted a duck on a small pond at sunset - which Merlin Bird ID app called a Pie-Billed Grebe. I had recently spotted one on the beaver pond in New Hampshire and learned it was an endangered breeding species there. I suspect this Grebe may be stopping off here in Indiana during migration.

ROUND BARN - Round barns are disappearing from the rural landscape. We found a great one near Washington, Indiana and even got a tour inside this amazing barn.

RED HEADED STRANGER - I'm finding the birds in Indiana to be a bit camera shy...as it has taken me more than a week here before I got my first bird POTD. We don't have Red-Headed Woodpeckers in New Hampshire, so I was pleased for this one to be my first Indiana bird POTD.
