Morrisburg - We have had Robins, Red-winged Blackbirds and geese for over a week but it is the arrival of Killdeer that says spring for me. This was my first.

Amherst Island - Kingston. This was luck. Watching a pair of Killdeer in their mating ritual is not something you can plan for. Before the male hopped onto her back he approached closely and she remained steady. I knew what was possible so I grabbed the camera and a few seconds later he was on top. The whole scene lasted about 10 seconds.

nest
This is a Killdeer nest that was built in approximately a 2 foot wide patch of grass next to the parking lot at the airport in Dorval, Quebec. I'm not sure how this bird will successfully raise young in this location. My biggest concern is the continuous mowing of grass, which somehow hasn't come over this nest yet.

Shortly after taking this photo, this Killdeer mated with another one nearby. Not sure if this is the male or female.

This (probably) female was faking incubation to call my attention away from her already hatched chicks that were playing around on the beach!
