One day the kids & I went to a wetlands area & spotted a Killdeer nest with eggs. We found it most peculiar that they would lay eggs right in the middle of a path, but apparently that’s normal for them.
Can you spot the nest?

We also saw a killdeer that day taking a bath.

No new birds to report this week. But, at least the year is half over & I’m over half way to my goal.
