Hi Bruce, your addition of this nest has gotten the Nests, Hives, Bowers...Animal Architecture mission to 1,000 participants! Thank you very much!

Thanks. I love nature and occasionally take photos. I added the Killdeer sighting to the Animal Architecture Mission. I have better photos of the nest and will add them later. My mother-in-law said the eggs finally hatched. Sadly, only one chick(?) survived. I understand Killdeer chicks are very cute, I wish we were there to see them.

Welcome to Project Noah, Bruce Davis.
Please consider adding this spotting to the Animal Architecture mission at
Picture # 2 is a great shot of the "pretending to be wounded" behavior killdeer use to lure predators away from their scrape nests.
