I was Accosted






By these guys when I was walking fence last Saturday. I thought they had a nest but I was wrong.

Maybe they thought you were hanging out where they wanted a nest. That'll teach you to loiter in their neighborhood! :)

Looks like their masks have slipped abit. Those black bands around their lower throats need to be lifted so as to mask their identity better.

And don't fall for any tricks they might pull either. They might just want to lure you in closer for an attack.

LOL Yeah they can get pretty obnoxious!!
Come on over to my blog and see the Killdeer baby pictures that I took from egg to hatch!! They are still all around too!

Cathy said...

Marianne! You weren't wrong! That's a baby killdeer in the last pix.
I enlarged it.

Awwww . . . sweet.

I'm right aren't I ?

Cathy said...

Duh -uh.

I guess you figured it out.

Duh-uh. :-D

Rev. Paul, I was looking for eggs and found three little babies instead. They were so cute and instantly invisible the second they stopped moving

RDA, I did and thanks! Such cute little guys. It was neat the way you followed the hatch

Cathy, Well, yeah, lol. I was trying to joke but.... I was very, very carefully watching where I walked and looking out for the usual four little pointed, very well camouflaged eggs and instead practically stepped on three little babies! I cannot believe how well they blend in!

Linda said...

Shirley said...

They are one of my favorite birds, such personalities.

Lisa, they have been back since late Feb. here I think, but I couldn't believe how far advanced the nesting season is!

Linda, I was so tickled to see them. they were very close, but it was hard to get pics of them because they vanished whenever they stopped moving!

Shirley, I love them too

Terry and Linda said...

GEEZ great photos! Those are ONE VERY HARD BIRD to photograph!
