After I loosed our dog yesterday, I heard the commotion of a killdeer. So I walked in the direction of the noise, saw the bird, and backtracked from it with my gaze.
There they were. Since I had Dora’s camera with 12X zoom, I didn’t have to get too close:
After shooting the eggs, I stood still and watched Mama Killdeer. She gave up pretending to be wounded and started walking toward me:
I stood my ground. Will she attack me?
She didn’t. I held still. I was amazed she finally went all the way to her nest with me standing less than ten feet away!
What a beautiful bird!
Thank you, Lord! I was so blessed and cheered and encouraged.
