killdeer chicks

Aww! Such cute'ms!

I would like to announce the arrival of the much-anticipated quadruplet killdeer chicklettes.

All seem to be healthy and, well, sleeping comfortably. One little bundle of fuzziness seems to be advanced from the others and actually peered at me. It did not seem amused by the bright sunlight.

Quadro-Mom and Dad held back from actually attacking me, but they were vociferous in their disapproval of my intrusion into their family time.

My apologies, but they should know by now that being associated with me has its downfalls.

And, frankly, the highlights are rare and fleeting.

Whatever, at: pam(at)
