Playing "king of the mountain"
I'll have to go back another day and check to see if there are eggs in this location. It's the typical site they would choose (gravel, dirt, no cover). I can't believe it, though, with all the noisy, heavy construction machinery at work around them.....doesn't seem very secure.
One was particularly upset by an American crow. I think the crow was innocent and simply wanted to drink from a puddle.
Don't you agree that this is one sharp-looking little bird?
