Poor Hurt Little Birdie!

Shenandoah, IA (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: Killdeer was putting on quite an act of "Poor hurt birdie" so we must be getting close to it's nest. Hope we can find it and warn the campers not to destroy it. Don't know why they insist on building their nests on the gravel roads in the busy campgrounds!

Haven't found the nest yet, but we are close. The one we were shooting last year with three eggs in it was run over by the mower wheel. The man told us he watches for them, but didn't see that one. Guess that is why they nest there. the eggs blend in perfectly with that gravel. Thanks, Friends, for stopping by and sharing stories!

Uh, huh, it's the old broken wing ploy!

Great shot, Maxine.

Great Shot!!  I had a pair that I knew were nesting "somewhere" in the gravel driveway at the horse's pasture.It took a good week of me watching them take off and flutter around in order to find the "nest".Pert near impossible to see the eggs.  I marked it with some large stones.

Great shot of this little one! We had a pair that built a nest across the sidewalk from a kindergarten class at our school a couple of years ago. The custodian built a small fence to keep the little feet from stepping on it! Nice shot!

About Nikongranny


Old, retired with lots of time on my hands and a Nikon. Lucky for me, there is a park just north of town that provides me with migrating birds and sunsets. Since joining this site, I have a new appreciation for this scenic world we live in. I especially love the comments from so many great people on here.
