Killdeer (Charadrius vociferus) nest in busy parking lot protect Found on golf courses or vacant gravell parking lots, this noisy plover is best known for its "broken wing" behavior. If a predator approaches, a nesting killdeer performs a conspicuous distraction display, dragging itself as if mortally wounded, often on one foot, its wings seemingly broken and its rusty tail fanned toward the intruder. This feigning of injury is effective in luring the predator away from the eggs or young, at which point the bird then "recovers" and flies off, calling loudly.

Nest and eggs of a Killdeer (Charadrius vociferus) This killdeer nest of nothing more than a shallow depression in the gravel, was found a busy marina parking lot. The owners of the marina placed cinder blocks around the well-camouflaged nest to prevent cars from running over the eggs. The killdeer mother was standing nearby when this photo was taken.

Birds on a tilted bird feeder Snowfall and the tilt of this bird feeder full of sunflower seeds did not deter these birds. Northern cardinals (Cardinalis cardinalis) and dark-eyed junkos (Junco hyemalis) were the primary visitors. The male cardinal is bright red and the female is a soft green-gray with red accents. Both have red beaks. The male junco found on the US East Coast has a pinkish beak and is slate gray on the top half of the body and soft white on the lower half. This photo was taken in February 2014 in Cambridge, MD USA. passerine,perching,habitat,winter,Chesapeake,Maryland
