It's Spring time

I thought I would share some photos of a nest that my husband found. We have an old feedlot that consists of LOTS of cement. While my husband was spraying for weeds he found this nest on the cement. 4 eggs nestled neatly in the pile of small rocks on top of the cement. It blends so well with the color of the eggs. It has inspired me to see if I can dye some wool to match the eggs and surroundings. It is a Kildeer bird and fun to watch the protective mother as we get close to the nest. Watching her pretend that she is hurt to lure us away from the nest!! Enjoy I did! Isn't it amazing how mother nature works?
