There is a little park right in the middle of our town that was built in just the last few years. There’s a fancy fountain, a grassy amphitheater, and a small Japanese style garden. Hubby and I went for a walk there the other day and I had to go back with my camera because of the killdeer. I’ve never been this close to a distressed bird before! I’ve heard of the broken wing act to lure possible predators away from a nest, but this little gal acted and re-enacted it right at my feet! I’ve checked back and the eggs haven’t hatched yet.
This mama killdeer practically attacked my feet!
She’s cheeping away in distress.
