W/W One Mama’s Nest

As my husband was mowing the lawn, he noticed a bird flapping her wings and chirping at him like crazy as he came closer to a patch of grass nearby. 

Thankfully, he heeded that mama bird’s advice and stayed away. 

wwnest Our self-proclaimed “bird geek” friends told us she is a Killdeer:

  3. Aww, Killdeer are so funny to watch, my mom had one nest in her gravel driveway once and whenever we visited it would try like crazy to lead us away by acting hurt. Silly mamma! So glad your hubby listened to her :)
