I was walking near the trees at a park looking for early Northern Mockingbird nests when I saw a Killdeer not flying away and calling while making the broken wing display. I took a step closer and the Killdeer called very loudly and I saw a Killdeer nest with a single egg. I took a few quick photos and then left as to not disturb her.


First Nest Of The Season–Killdeer Nest

Female Killdeer making broken wing display while calling. This one was defending her nest more than the other Killdeer nests I've seen. I made my visit very brief so as to not disturb her.

    Our first nest of the season is the bluebird pair in the box. I checked around 6 PM EDT, 3.14.23 and had some nest materials in the box.
