Today Near the TCAAP WVA, I Saw a Killdeer

We had a great day for the St. Paul Audubon Urban Bird Festival near the TCAAP Wildlife Viewing Area. This momma killdeer got a little hungry or nervous. She was sitting quietly while nearly 30 of us shuffled by and made photos. Later she got up and picked at the ground for a few minutes and sat back down on the next.

We saw a dead common nighthawk and lots of other live birds. We also saw two coyote puppies far in the distance.

A male eastern bluebird was bringing food to a nearby nest can.  Fortunately we had a bluebird expert with us so we took a look at the four babies.
