We had the privilege of watching a pair of Killdeer (Charadrius vociferus) choosing a nesting site, on our property! They danced off property a bit, because we were stalking them, but were attracted by some areas of high grass on our place. We have never seen killdeer in Almont, or even very close, before this day. The male was a bit upset with me, because the female was attracted by the shutter noise, and made right for me a time or two. Hopefully, after we left them, they’ll choose a spot on property or close, so we can watch them parent. A very exciting event for dinosaur watchers! All photos are 1500 x 996, click for full size.
