i wanted to add also be careful where you walk when seeing the killdeers because most often they nest on the ground and you might step on their eggs if not careful. they are nice to see are'nt they ?

What a cute pic, wolfeyes! I see them occasionally in Ct., they are entertaining little birds. I've seen them do their "wounded" act trying to lead me away from their nest.

Yea I know that was the weirdest thing we had ever seen .. I had at first thought the momma bird was hurt until I figured out there was a nest there.. They act all big but stay far enough from ya so you don't get them..lol They are so adorable though.. we now just have to make sure the dogs don't get near them..just hope next yr they find a better spot to have babies..

Doesn't look like a very comfortable nest, though, does it? No soft fluffy dog hair lining, just hot gravel. But I guess it works for them...

FIREBLL31..That what I had thought too. and HOT.. it has been blistering hot here just can't imagine sitting on eggs for 4 weeks baking in this hot sun..but they did..they both took turns sitting on them was a neat thing to watch. They are better parents than some humans I know.. And they didn't stay in it for long once born I think maybe a day.. the mom and dad had then running all over the yard and now they have moved across the street to be near the water..but they were adorable while it lasted.
