Several weeks ago I spotted a killdeer nest and just watched it. There were 4 eggs, 3 of which hatched. About a week after they hatched, all I could find was this little guy, his brother and his mother. I was not feeding them at all, I was just lucky that this guy was curious.

This score is a personal best for me and I am pleased - thanks to everyone!
