Beautiful shot with nest and eggs. Was the mate trying to attract you with a "broken"? wing
Nice spot =)
Very Beautiful picture. I love these birds . They have melodious calls . I find a lot of these on High school Football and Track Fields.http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/720...
I guess I've heard of Killdeer nesting next to a road before too. The plovers seem to be determined and excellent parents. It could be a male as both sexes look the same and they do take turns on the nest.
Hey thanks (: It was inland - it was actually a parking lot midway through a wildlife drive... I've noticed that these birds have a tendency to lay their eggs in the most inconvenient places. It was about 100 degrees that day and she was panting very hard, but she wouldn't let her eggs out of the shade even for a second. Good mom if you ask me (:
Wonderful picture! I posted the scientific name so you can add that to your posting. Do you have rocky beaches like that? Or was this more inland?
