Meet Whitey. He has taken up residence at my neighbor’s. He makes himself quite at home. He has no fear of people, animals or cars. Here I caught him napping in their driveway and had to go around him because he seemed to have no intention of moving. As you can see, he has a band so he does belong somewhere, but for now, he’s calling this home.

This is the nest of a Killdeer
The Killdeer (Charadrius vociferus) is a medium-sized plover.
I noticed it yesterday while mowing the pasture. Mama bird was doing the broken wing act, but she let me get pretty close with the tractor and never left her nest. I went back today to get her picture, but she was away from the nest trying her best to lure me away. I got as close as I dared to take these photos, but don’t worry, I didn’t touch them. Aren’t they pretty?
Here is one of the reasons I wish I had a better zoom on my camera. He looked so majestic sitting in that tree.
