This mornings light..................I just couldn't resist running down to the lighthouse to get this mornings sunrise.

Killdeer nest

At first I thought our bird was a Piping Plover. But some of my birding friends identified her as a Killdeer. They are so close in color and markings. If you look closely, the Killdeer has two stripes around the neck and the Plover only has one.
