That bird is remarkably calm and quiet for protecting it's nest. I'm surprised you didn't see the other parent nearby.

I love killdeer, even when they're being annoying. I hope you see some little chicks, they've got to be the cutest thing you'll ever see.

Please protect the area from the neighborhood cats as they are very vulnerable and sometimes the killdeer's "dance" might not be enough to protect the babies from them.


Beautiful shorebird! It's "dancing" to distract you from it's eggs. Be careful where you walk–the eggs are very hard to see. You'll love to see the babies they are precocial and very cute! Thank you for sharing.
