    Cool! I've heard they do this, but I've never seen it. You must have been close to the nest?

    There was a pair nesting in one of the areas I regularly walk. they usually just squawked and tried to lead me away from the nest/young. Never did try seriously to find the nest.

    Nice one.

    Please consider to help us by submitting known nesting record(s) of shorebirds, including this Killdeer. Our Breeding Shorebird Mapping Project is seeking for contributors. Bird photographers make excellent job finding nesting locations of shorebirds. I would much appreciate to see your record in our database. Should you have any nesting data of other species don't hesitate to add them. :)

    Please make a visit and add you record if you have time. www.worldwaders.org

    Cheers, Szimi
