Very interesting…but they do manage to survive.  They must have multiple litters (I know, not the right term) of kids.  I love them!

The Bluebird of Happiness left an egg on the raised bed between the Swiss Chard and Bok Choy. Apparently she couldn't make it to the nest which is about 100' away. Shocked

Birds of the Garden - Page 7 Empty Killdeer eggs in nest

Post  OhioGardener 5/7/2024, 1:15 pm

The Killdeer has four eggs in her makeshift nest in the gravel driveway, in exactly the same location where she raised four babies last year.  Don't know how they survive with vehicles driving over the nest every day, but they do.

Isn’t that amazing?  I remember one year when one of the kids was playing soccer, a Killdeer had made a nest on the sideline of the field….kept acting like it had a broken wing when the kids were in the vicinity to lure them away.  I finally put my chair over it, and the ref came up and said something, I just said—“Look”.  He said, “got it”.

Yes, they have quite a routine to try to get you away from their nest. The male sits at the end of the driveway near the road, and anytime anyone approaches the driveway he goes into his injured routine to get them to follow him. The FedEx driver came in today, and he wanted to know what was going on in the driveway with the birds. I explained to him the Killdeer nesting in the driveway, and they were trying to get him out of them. So he said he'd be careful going out.
