Thanks for reporting the Killdeer young at this late date.  That's significant and fits the beginning of an apparent trend(?).

Reported in the latest American Birds (Vol. 63 No. 2), small Killdeer chicks were reported at Daytona Beach, FL on 11 December and at Inverness, AL on 27 December - extending their known breeding dates in those states by 4 months.
