Have you ever watched a momma kildeer bird. They are such a joy to watch. Take a few steps, slight pause to raise a leg, take a few more steps, slight pause raise the other leg. Almost like poetry in motion, very predictable but I have been told they do this to lure predators away from their young. I cannot imagine her having any hatchlings in the weather we have been having. We had several weeks of snow and suddenly she appeared on the parking lot at work, I watched her for quite sometime doing her little dance, puttering around here and there. Makes me wonder where she had been during all of this snow and freezing temperatures.
