#4 – Killdeer Eggs

At work today, we were planting trees in a mulch bed where a Killdeer was squawking at us, puffing out her feathers and chasing us away. We soon realized she had eggs she was protecting. We drew a circle in the mulch so we knew not to step there. Though she chirped her annoyance at us the entire time we worked, all was well in the end! I never would have guessed what beautiful eggs they have!

    They are beautiful eggs! I’ve seen the Killdeers with their diversion techniques and constant squawking to keep predators away from their nests, but I haven’t seen the eggs till now in this picture.
