It was a hot day; the sun was really beaming down. Daddy was in the field plowing and I was sure he was needing some cool fresh water. I went by the spring and filled my stone jug to the brim, and off to the field I went. I always received great pleasure going to the field to walk through the freshly plowed soil and smell the nice odor coming from the ground. I was happy any time I could observe nature too. As I went along burying my bare feet into the damp, cool soil, I was humming a little tune. All at once I ran upon a mother killdeer nest on the ground. Her color blended in with mother nature. Her speckled eggs looked like little rock pebbles. When she saw me she limped along just out of reach, dragging one wing as though it was broken. I thought the poor thing was hurt. I ran along, trying to catch her. She spread her wings and soared away, but was soon back on her nest. Once again, I tried to get her; I wanted to help her. I just knew she was in pain, but I had no luck. She would just go into her act again.
When I got over to where Daddy was plowing, I told him about the poor little bird. He laughed and explained to me that this was her way to lure predators away from her nest. I said, “Well, she sure has a funny way to do it.” I’m sure the mother killdeer was glad to see me leave.
