Killdeer on Her Nest

Killdeer on Her Nest
In a recent blog, I had discussed the broken-wing display of the killdeer.  I just decided to go back to observe and photograph the Killdeer on her nest.  Of course, when I approached the Killdeer went into broken wing display.  I chose a spot close by and lay down on the sand.  My lens and camera was supported on a gimbal head attached to the skimmer pod.  By being essentially as still as I could, the Killdeer came back to her nest and I observed her as she moved around and looked around her surroundings.  The Killdeer apparently got used to me and the only time she moved away from the nest, was one people walked by on the beach.  Using this methodology gave me a chance to watch the natural behavior of a Killdeer.  The Killdeer would look around, keep an eye on her surroundings, occasionally stand and change position.
