Killdeer

Why do golfers wear two pairs of pants?

In case they get a hole in one!

Interesting Fact: Killdeer lay their eggs into an empty nest but add other materials later on. Some of these items they pick up as they are leaving and toss over their shoulder into the nest. In one nest in Oklahoma, people found more than 1,500 pebbles had accumulated this way. ( https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Killdeer/lifehistory )

  1. We had a pair lay eggs on our once gravel driveway. They would go “crazy” each time we drove in and out. (Rightly, so.) Still I never cared much for their “sqawk”. They are pretty though and I like your watermark!

    • Thank you. Oh wow, that must have been really annoying. Thank you very much for stopping by and sharing your story with us. Happy Blogging! πŸ™‚

  2. This bears a similarity to the Common Ringed Plover (Charadius hiaticula) that occurs all over South Africa. Your photograph is wonderful!
