We visited Bo’s parents yesterday and saw a Killdeer bird faking a broken wing act. It’s so funny to watch, and it’s obvious that she was faking it, I guess she didn’t think so. This one was trying to distract us from its nest.

Bo put rocks around it so his dad wouldn’t run over with a lawnmower. He didn’t plant the flower btw, she just picked a nice spot.
As soon as she saw me coming, she stepped away from her nest.
As soon as I approached her nest, she took off running and faking her broken wings.
She is a drama queen, the daddy was nearby.
Max was watching it from a distance. Normally he could roam freely when he visits Bo’s parents, but this time he couldn’t.
It’s really neat to see so much wildlife in your area. The killdeer is lucky to have someone protect her nest with the rocks.
I’ve never been near a bird nest before, maybe at the science museum. And that is not how I like to see it! 🙂
Cambree, the bird nest is everywhere in our area, I think it’s fascinating that the eggs have different colors and the robin’s egg is prettiest imo since it’s bright blue. The bird nest at the museum appear too valuable to me, I guess it nice to see the kind that we don’t come across very often.
