You know those pesky birds that run on the ground, beep and chirp at you and really try very hard to get you to follow them? Well, those are killdeer and they live in our neighborhood. We’ve tried for years to find eggs or see the little newly hatched fuzz balls – but we’ve never found them. But today, they found us.
There are four little ones, and boy they can run fast right out of the gate. It’s funny when you spook the family – everyone of them runs as fast as they can in a different direction. I did scare them when trying to get photos, so they aren’t quite ready to come back into our yard. Right now they are hanging in the gravel of the neighbor’s driveway, I can watch them from my office window. Hopefully I can get out and try to get more photos when it stops raining.
It’s neighborhood wildlife fun?
