Killdeer baby/momma in our yard!

John took the camera outside and captured some cute pictures of this little killdeer who may have fallen out of his nest.

If you click on the picture, you can see its little face better.

It started running when John approached it (to get a closer picture).

(Ignore the dandelions--the weed guy was only here once last year--and will be back twice this year, thankfully! The clover was entirely gone in one treatment!)

Momma and daddy killdeer were trying to lead the baby back to the nest area (we have no idea where it is) and trying to distract us, too.

(Noel was outside at the time, but uninterested in the baby bird for some reason.)

Oh, SO cute! It must've been adorable scampering away from John, too.
