The kids found a Killdeer out in the equipment yard.
Can you find her?
Here she is, trying to convince me that she has a broken wing and trying to lure me (and the cat) away from her ground nest.
And meanwhile, her unguarded eggs are nearly as camouflaged as she is!
See 'em?
What an awesome way to see nature close up and explain it to the kids!
This is my new-to-me chicken barn getting loaded up at its old home:
And here it is pulling into my yard! (It's the 2nd building. I also got a matching multi-stall garage for extra storage.)
It's not in its final place yet, but it will be soon. Until then, my chickies and ducklings will be housed in my old chicken barn, which I will be using as a turkey barn in the future.
