Babywatch ’09

Turns out, she was close by, but when she realized she was being watched, she put on a little performance, pretending to be injured as a distraction from the vulnerable nest.

She made her way back soon enough to settle down and get back to business.

  1. I love the egg photo. It’s not often you get to see that, even around these parts! Look at me, I’m injured.

  2. Yes, quite exciting to see. But predators are still a threat. Let’s keep our fingers crossed and hope to see healthy, scampering chicks.
