Killdeer Eggs in ground nest

ANY CHARACTER HERE

We found these Killdeer eggs by approaching a “broken wing” Killdeer and adjusting our position for maximum response from the bird. They were on low-cut grassy ground directly outside a horse barn with a half dozen barn cats wandering around. That broken wing act was HIGHLY effective in keeping the cats away from the nest and (later) the baby Killdeers.
