Description

I came upon this killdeer nest on a sandy beach at a sand pit made into a recreation area. I have never seen a killdeer nest on sand (only pebbles before) and have never seen one lined with plant material. Must have been an extra creative mama.

Plant Lined Killdeer Nest

I came upon this killdeer nest on a sandy beach at a sand pit made into a recreation area. I have never seen a killdeer nest on sand (only pebbles before) and have never seen one lined with plant material. Must have been an extra creative mama. She was there crying when I first found the nest but was not pretending to be wounded. When I came back later with my camera no bird was around.
