We spotted the Kildeer last week, running around the garden and fields, hoping that it was choosing a better spot for a nest than than the middle of our vegetable fields. Yesterday, Mari found the nest. An improvement, but far from perfect. The nest is still in the garden, but near the edge, nestled among the cover crops. She almost missed it, but did see it before accidentally scrambling those eggs with the tractor.
The eggs are beautiful. Now we just must wait for the fledglings to appear.
