Observation details

Female flushed when we were perhaps 3-4m away from the nest and proceeded to fly clumsily back and forth in the immediate area, feigning injury. There was one chick, mostly feathered, still on the ground nest (there were 2 on initial discovery last week). Female continued leading us down the trail away from nest, in 2-3 bouts of "injured" flying before presumably looping back towards her chick.
