This Kildeer would have 5-6 little ones under her body at various times of the day. It seemed she would give a signal and they would scurry over and start poking there way in under the wing. The adult would then plop down over the little ones. This shot takes patience and the right time of the year. The mortality rate of the babies is high. Many predators around such as racoons, posseum, and other birds such as crows and egrets.
