Killdeer chicks in Milwaukee County Wisconsin on June 3, 2024

While birding the Milwaukee County lakefront I came across a couple of Killdeer chicks. 2 adults were close by with one sitting on a nest. It was a beautiful morning with plenty of sunshine, cool temps early and low winds. Images were taken on June 3, 2024.

    Oh my heavens, what could be more vulnerable, fragile, delicate than a baby killdeer! And you captured that endearing form stretching for joy! Precious. The adult has such an expressive face, a touch of sad near her eyes. She’s known the loss of eggs to predation. Yet here she is, watching two of her chicks foraging, stretching, loving life! And maybe she feels more life beneath her. Such a beautiful scene! Thank you, Jim!
