The little Killdeer that I saw today may not have the most comfortable nest,

but it gets an A+ for great camouflage for its eggs! Its choice for nest location,

however, leaves a lot to be desired; it laid its eggs about 12 inches from the sidewalk,

a couple of feet from a door, in the parking lot of...  "archery headquarters!"

I wonder how many times a day this Killdeer has to use the "broken wing act"

that these birds are notorious for. As we admired it, and I took the photos,

one thought raced through my mind... if that bird only understood how many

 hunters walk past it each day...cringe! Ignorance can be bliss :)

The cute bird is under the middle shrub :)
