Killdeer in winter

Freezing weather, especially when the ground is covered with snow, makes food-finding more difficult for many birds. Today I watched this Killdeer, along with individuals of eight other species, finding things to eat in a temporary stream flowing through a filbert orchard. I had never before seen Steller's Jays gathering nuts out of a creek.
