Killdeer
Killdeer are well-known for trying to get you to chase them and thus protect their nest. They will also feign a broken wing to try and distract you. A very distinctive call makes them easy to identify.

We have a long gravel driveway that leads up to our farm which is a great spot for Killdeer to hang out and nest. They have a very distinctive call and will try to get you to chase them in order to protect their chicks. Pretending to have a broken wing is another trick they do to try and draw you away from the nest.
