….. Is it a bird?

Quintus was getting another driving lesson (Mommy-driving-school) while Jason was busy with a tennis lesson (not by me)

We were driving on an open piece of land when I saw Plovers get up and fly. I shouted told Quintus to stop.  Thats when we saw the fluff with legs running away.

C.U.T.E.

I got out to take a closer look but they just disappeared. Then I saw something that I thought might be a frog….. But no. It was one off the babies lying flat on the ground. I thought that maybe somehow we had driven over it  😦 but no! There was another one also hiding under a grass blade or two.

The parents were NOT impressed that I got so close to them. Its amazing how they protect their little ones even from people, who are clearly much bigger!

  4. So Fluffy!! Squee!
    We used to have baby chickens when I was a kid, I always wished they were more willing to be carried around!
