About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

The Eggs Hatched!

Remember our little nest of eggs? Well, they hatched! Killdeer birds are special in that once their wings dry (after hatching) they are able to run! All four survived (we were so happy!) despite the terrible storms we had. Here is one of the little cuties in action...


This picture shows the Mom and one of her babies...


I truly thought the eggs would hatch and we would never see the babies. It was so special being able to witness this miracle...

Lori, that is just so cool that you got to see the little Killdeer babies! I love to watch them at the beach running around the sand. I actually thought they were sandpipers at first but no they were killdeers. Enjoy them!

Lori,

They are adorable!! Makes me want my own nest :) Sometimes I'm tempted to let my chickens (3 girls and 1 oops she's a boy ;) hatch one of their eggs, so I can have a chick again!!

Holly said...

How cute! Were you able to get very close? I know momma Killdeer birds can be very protective and loud when you get close to their nest. . .

Take care and have a great 4th of July holiday
