Killdeer Hatched

Marcia noticed that three of the four Killdeer’s eggs had hatched early on 5 July.  Since the young are precocial, they didn’t hang around long.  You can read about them by clicking here.

They are really camouflaged in among the stones.  Did you see them?  They are in the center of the pictures.

Marcia took some of these pictures using her iPhone6.  I used my Canon SX720 HS.  By 6 July all of the eggs had hatched and they had left the nest area.
