Killdeer Mom on Nest

We celebrate Moms this weekend. As you are celebrating or thinking about Mom or that special lady in your life, keep in mind bird moms.

Killdeer moms sit on the eggs when temperatures are cool and stand over them for shade when it’s too hot. Can you find Mom sitting on the eggs in the picture above?

Here is a picture showing how well camouflaged her eggs are in the nest.

Killdeer Nest & Eggs

As you are celebrating or thinking about Mom or that special lady in your life, keep an eye out this weekend for bird moms that are building nests, sitting on eggs or already feeding fledglings.

Stop by your local Wild Birds Unlimited store to share your bird Mom story or learn more about giving bird Moms a helping hand.

Happy Mother’s Day!
