Killdeer

At Johns work every year there is a Killdeer family that lay eggs.  We are just fascinated by them, so we went down and took pictures and videos.

Mommy sitting on her eggs, she blends so well.


This is mommy she just squawked one time really loud and is standing up because we are too close.  Daddy heard her squawk, and here he comes

This video is what the daddy does to lure us away from the mommy and her eggs.
He makes this te-te-te-te-te-te-te-te noise and flops all around on the ground like he has a broken wing.  As you get closer he gets up and takes you further away from the mommy and eggs.
