New bird on the block

Killdeer nest on the moss growing on our old tennis court.

At first I thought our bird was a Piping Plover. But some of my birding friends identified her as a Killdeer. They are so close in color and markings. If you look closely, the Killdeer has two stripes around the neck and the Plover only has one.
