Sitting on the nest
Killdeer are normally very skittish birds and are very difficult to approach closely. On this day I had the good fortune to find this bird sitting on her nest. Once I approached too closely she began displaying a very aggressive attitude. In the past I have had them attempt to lead me away with the “broken wing” trick but this little girl stood her ground, flared her feathers and called incessantly.
