The Killdeer come every spring and nest within the Marina boundaries. Usually they nest in the boat yard and the nests get crushed. Hoping that this years nest is successful.

    Hi Lesley,
    Thank you for the great photo. I’ve yet to find a Killdeer nest. Lucky you and good eyes.
    Regarding the nests being crushed, I don’t know the situation where you are, but perhaps this might help.
    A man in Pinehurst, NC, wrote that the golf course crew put up some kind of wooden barrier with small flags to mark the nest until the young were gone.
