Killdeer plovers in Florida, USA

This video from the USA says about itself:

22 December 2016

Killdeer running and hunting insects (Charadrius vociferus). They remind me of little roadrunners and although they are technically shorebirds in the Plover family they really like to spend their time running in open grassy and dirt areas. …

Fall migrants swell the Florida population July through November, and spring migration occurs primarily in March and April. The Killdeer is the most common and widely distributed shorebird in Florida. The absence of the species from most of mainland Monroe County is to be expected, as mangroves and saw grass are not preferred breeding habitats.
