Kildeer lay their eggs in scooped out gravel nests in the middle of fields and parking lots. If you get too close they protect their eggs and their young by pretending to have a broken wing and leading you in the opposite direction. When I realized the kildeer were in nesting season, I stayed away from the parking lot across the street. Now that they have led their cute little babies into the grassy areas to hide, I decided to find a nest. And look -- the one I found was shaped like a heart!
