mmmm, eggs for breakfast ;)
how'd she let you get this close? the eggs are sure well camouflaged!
Kamaly- These birds run away from the nest feigning a broken wing when danger approaches. I've got her accustomed enough to me to return and settle on her eggs. I'm hoping no critters find her so I can get pictures of the emerging chicks. I'll bet they're really cute.
Nice one. We have some of these birds around here... it is funny how they fake being hurt.
I checked on my babies today. Two eagles were standing within 30 feet of the nest, completely oblivious to the nearby snack. Mom showed up soon after I spooked the eagles off. Now it's dark and the coons will be looking.
Hope they survive!
I'm going to keep checking on YOUR brood, Guy.
Thanks Paul. Just reading comments here and I noticed it would have been neat if you put them in order with my eagle on top looking at the eggs on bottom, with your killdeer running interference in the middle. (Or should I just get a second coffee this morning?) Actually there were two eagles standing near the nest a few days ago,oblivious to breakfast. Hopefully soon we'll see some "chick flicks". I'm a little hampered with dial-up,but I'll look at your site some more after. Guy.
The eggs are starting to crack, anyone know when I should scramble back for another look?
sounds like you should pitch a tent and stay nearby! This interesting link says they hit the ground running.
