Killdeer at the salvage yard

See the three eggs? One from 2010, I put this on flickr years ago and thought of it on Wednesday when I went to see Joel Sartore speak in Tampa. He had a photo of a Tern which also nests on the ground and lays eggs that blend in with the ground. This killdeer was at the Starkey Road Auto Parts. I saw the adult and it was faking an injury to lure me from the nest. Sticking one wing out and acting like it could not fly. The guys that worked there had marked the nest with a propane tank and some scrap so they wouldn’t run it over while they were moving stuff around with a forklift.
