Killdeer Babies Arrive - June 13, 2011
This morning four Killdeer eggs hatched in the nest at our neighbor's horse riding arena. Two of the chicks wandered around the nest area, but quickly returned to the nest when mom scolded them. Mother Killdeer would circle the nest periodically scanning for any predators. Each time she returned, all four chicks would snuggle under her breast and wings.
