Killdeer (Charadrius, sometimes Oxyechus, vociferus)
In 24 days these Killdeer bird eggs will hatch. They are in the center of my driveway just to the east of the front door. They are so easy to see up close. Once I back up, I cannot see them at all.
A killdeer pair sits on the eggs, taking turns keeping them warm and safe. If something gets too close the little birds will limp off as if they have an injury so the “predator” will be distracted and follow them rather than focus on the eggs in the rather pathetic little nest.
