Description

I was walking down the road leading to the lake when I heard the alarm calls of two Killdeer. I immediately saw the male about 10 feet in front of me doing its broken wing act; I was having a difficult time locating the other one that was louder. I then looked down and I was only 3 feet from the female who was guarding the nest; she wasn’t happy. I backed off a bit and shot some photos. There were three eggs on that day but three days later there were four.
