A few weeks ago I posted an image of a Killdeer Sitting on its nest in my driveway. Yesterday all four chicks were born and I was there to experience the process. Quite amazing to watch. Initially the chicks appeared to be dead but within less than an hour, they were up and moving around. In fact, the parents had trouble keeping up with them. Another pair of Killdeer came by to assist the parents in corralling the young. My plan is to post more images as I get them. These photos were taken from behind blind or with my Nikon on a camouflaged tripod hooked up to a Cam Ranger.
all images shot with either D 500 plus 500 with 1.4X or A7R3 100-400 at 400 plus 1.4X
First image is a family scene
Second image is the Killdeer chick within minutes of emerging from its egg.
Third image is a very large crop taken about an hour after it started moving around.
