Killdeer on nest. Jim May Park, Santa Maria, CA

Observation details

Found one bird on eggs. Interesting encounter in that I was walking through the stubble here and I nearly stepped on the bird. It never left the nest and only weakly feigned at my approach. I had no idea there was a Killdeer on a nest at my feet until it peeped. I stepped back quickly and photographed the bird before moving away.
