Description

Amazingly, these Killdeer nested on a derelict foundation in the middle of a construction site. In spite of the noise and busyness, they courageously stayed on the nest until all four eggs had hatched. Not long after, the foundation, too, was destroyed as the planned ‘development’ progressed.

Change Of Shift

Both Killdeer parents help to incubate the eggs and keep the nestlings protected. Not all the eggs hatch at once, of course. This parent pair was very faithful to the nest until all four eggs had hatched.
