Remember our mama kildeer sitting on her eggs in our driveway? Bless her heart, she stuck with it through a BUNCH of rainy cold days.
Well, we managed to protect them from folks pulling in and out of our driveway, and we were watching them closely counting down the incubation days, so we wouldn't miss them. I knew they wouldn't stay around long. On exactly day 28, two babies made their debut into this world. They chose the perfect day......a Wednesday..... because all my piano students were able to enjoy this lesson in nature with us!
Here they are not long after they were born.....being so still while being photographed by this intrusive human.
And within just hours later, they were strutting around the yard.
With their cute little legs carrying them as fast as they go, squawking the entire time and with enough instinct to get away from that lady with the camera, they hurried away in the opposite direction of me. And then mama squawked a series of squawks to guide them back to her.
One was a little shy......choosing to try to hide from me.....
And the other one chose to high step it away from me....as quick as those little legs would go. :)
They only stayed over night, and then they were off on their own new adventures. :)
What a nature lesson God provided for us!
