Look at this cute little Kildeer. Adorable.
I also love the way Kildeer walk. So in a hurry: https://youtu.be/KyadCR3AJeQ
If you ever see an “injured” adult bird, don’t necessarily believe it. In summer, Kildeer nest in these tiny nests — often in parking lots at my work. The first time I saw a limping momma Kildeer, I felt sorry for her. She limped. She
cocked her wing to make it look like it was mangled. I’ve since learned this is a ploy momma’s do to lead you away from her precious babies. Groovy, right?!
The Administration’s 2018 budget blueprint, released last month, would eliminate many EPA programs — bird habitat and important conservation programs decimated. The crippled bird, may be all too real in the future.
