Killdeer nest

 

It was the frenetic display of a feigned broken wing that signalled the unexpected nearness of a Killdeer’s nest.¬†

Indeed, a quick look around revealed four camouflaged eggs lying on the open ground.

I promptly retreated, the Killdeer relaxed and returned to its nest. Part of one egg is visible.
