Fake Out!

This Piping Plover was hit by some buckshot, or so it would have me believe. More like feigning a broken wing, as a diversionary tactic, because I must have been walking a little too close to its chicks. Eric and I actually saw the chicks yesterday. They looked like little brown cotton balls walking on tooth picks. Of course they hid, too well, when I returned with my camera today. I could not spot them for the life of me.
