Photos: Killdeer plovers at Bitter Lake

I think there's a baby under there!

Baby birds are starting to hatch, to the great enjoyment of Bruce Hill, who lives at Bitter Lake.

Here comes another one!

Retired, he has time to watch the nests, and find his opportunity to get photos without disturbing mothers or babies.


As far as the mothers, it's clear that it's easier to sit on eggs than chicks!

Time to take the kids for a walk!

Update: readers have pointed out that our bird is a different kind of plover, called a Killdeer.

What you see here is not a snowy plover, it's a killdeer (also a plover species, common in our area).

Fabulous photos, Bruce. Thanks for sharing!

Those are not Snowy Plovers, those are Killdeer.
