It's all about the little things

Like these tiny kildeer babies that hatched yesterday in the empty lot next to my office. Folks have been watching the nest for several days and yesterday it disappeared, replaced with these tiny little wonders running around on their little stick legs. Turns out kildeer are precocial which means they can run around and feed themselves within an hour or so of hatching. Completely amazing.

Well drat, stupid blogger didn't upload the zoomed in picture and I don't have time to mess around with it. If you click on the picture it'll bring up a bigger version and you can actually see the little fluffies.
