Last week when we were at Mom's cutting grass, I remembered to take a photo of something that we had been noticing for a couple of weeks or more.
I had seen a bird, a Killdeer, protecting it's nest. There would be that squawking and running and behaving as if it were injured movement away from the nest every time I would go by there. So, I took a little time to see where exactly the nest might be when the adult bird was sitting still.
Then, when she was away from the nest, I walked down to take a look.
It was just an interesting find for me and I don't remember seeing a nest like that since I was a girl. Of other birding interest, our bluebird friends who built a nest in our decorative blue birdhouse on the back porch have returned this year and they have a nest of eggs there again. The are pretty to watch fluttering in and around the back porch.
