This morning Austin and I were getting ready for our race when we noticed a killdeer just outside of the race transition area doing the “broken wing” routine & trying to get us to chase her. We then saw that there was an area just outside of the fence that had cones all around it, and right in the middle of it was a nest with 4 eggs – momma was trying to lure us away from her nest! By the end of the day she had become somewhat accustomed to all of the people passing through. She still wasn’t happy with the situation, and still showed some dedication to her “luring the predators away” duties, but she did let us get a nice picture of her standing over the nest.

You had better leave my eggs alone!
