Ha. Well, I happen to really like the birds, so that's cool with me:) They are gentle souls.

If you get too close to the nest, the parents might do a comical broken wing act, like your Killdeer did in that other post.

This was a few weeks ago, the day before they fledged.  The pair is back again for a second round  haha  I don't mind.  I specifically hung the pot up without any plants so they could use it like they did twice last year.  

Just to give you an idea of how close they let me get, this was a 50mm lens that I was holding up above my head, maybe about a foot away from their faces.  They got so used to us being around, they would only flinch if we made really sudden movements or loud noises
