July 8, 2014: Killdeer

Killdeer. 7/4/14 (Wolf. Oesterreich)

Just before exiting the Park (7/4) I found a single Killdeer youngster along the Harrison Rd spur.  An adult accompanied it and tried to deter me from snapping a photograph.  The female normally lays 4 eggs in a scrape on the ground.  I wondered where the siblings were, or was this chick the only one to survive to this stage?
