I'm wondering if everyone should start posting their bird pics here: http://www.wildlifegardeners.org/for...ix-2012-a.html

I notice several "classic" threads are now revived with the new year 2012 tagged on to the end. Someone's thinking ahead.

Yes, some of those classic threads are getting pretty long. Many of them have several hundred posts; I don't want to see a day when the forum software "chokes" on one of those threads because of the length! Hasn't happened yet, and probably wouldn't in the near future, but an ounce of prevention ... .

~smile~ Makes sense to me.

The next avian photo that I feel is worthy of sharing will go there (http://www.wildlifegardeners.org/for...ix-2012-a.html).

Default Special day with my Daughter

It is so much fun seeing nature in action with my 4 year old little girl. We were at our local nursery looking for something to replace my broccoli that I harvested. Walking to the vegetable greenhouse we stumbled upon some rather angry Killdeer, where my daughter asks "What are they doing?". They had their heads down, shaking their wings and squawking quite angrily. I then noticed their little nest on the ground, had to take a picture. Got to explain that birds lay eggs and protect them from threats. Kinda warmed my heart with how my little girl quickly understood what I was saying and and how interested she was in how and why the birds do what they do.

I'm surprised you found the nest.
They usually flutter and flap their way away from their nest to keep it from being found!
Go back every so often to show her the little ones when they hatch. They do not stick around very long.......

Looks like a yellow-rumped warbler to me. Nice pics
