Description

The mother Killdeer was very hard to spot by a casual observer. The only that I got a picture of the eggs was when she left the nest. She was very protective and tried to lure me away from the nest. The nest was a work of art, the eggs blending so well with the background. It was a wonderful day when three eggs hatched, one never hatching. The babies soon scampered off after their sweet mama. It was an amazing experience to behold.

The eggs were so well hidden. It looked just like an expert artist dabbled black, grey, brown and caramel paints all over the white canvas of the eggs.
