Great shots. I think you can see her speckeled egg in shot #3. The killdeers around my house like to lay there eggs on the walking path I use. As you walk by sometimes they act injured to lure you away from the nest. They are quite entertaining.

Nice series MBrager, and another vote for #1.

(Killdeer gets its name by the call it makes. Sounds like it is saying "kill deer" over and over repeatedly).

Wonderful in flight shot, Mike. Those are quite peculiar birds. I watched as one male tried to fend off a gopher from his three youngens and his wife while at Buffalo Lake. Of course I went for a walk with the wife, and not with the camera :wall-an::headslap::wall-an:
