MASTER OF DISGUISE AND DECEPTION: THE KILLDEER:  This bird builds its nest as just a depression in gravel, in a wide open area.  When approached by an enemy (man or otherwise) they will fake an injured wing and hobble away, just out of reach of a predator until far enough away from their nest and suddenly the wing is miraculously healed and the Killdeer flies away having distracted the predator away from it's nest.   In this photo, notice the 4 camouflaged eggs under this bird.  Watch for future photos as I will attempt to get pictures of the babies.
