This mommy Killdeer built her nest in a parking lot. The gravel portion goes down into a ravine but she is at the upper edge, just beyond the curb, where I parked my car. The employees at the store where the lot is located said they have been watching her daily and waiting to see the eggs hatch.
Here's #1! This newly hatched little Killdeer popped out from under mom, looking around at the big world. If you look closely, you can see another egg, maybe two, still waiting to hatch.
Isn't it adorable?
And the back view...how cute is that nubby little tail?!
On skinny little legs, this baby hopped all around his mommy and over the rocks, then went right back underneath. He must have gotten tired out and decided it was nap time.
Snug as a bug in a rug ;)
God's creation never ceases to amaze me!
God blessed them, saying, “Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let birds multiply on the earth.” ~ Genesis 1:22
Look at the birds of the air, that they do not sow, nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not worth much more than they? ~ Matthew 6:26
