This silly girl nested right beside the path in the Cairns Tropical Zoo even though she had loads of hidey places to lay her eggs!

    Bit of a bird brain????
    beaitiful shot. The British Curlew has a long curved bill and a very distinctive call. Probably just as daft LOL

    gorgeous photo Jenny, these seem as mad re where they nest as Plovers.

  • we had some plovers lay a nest right beside the helipad at the hospital, when the chopper came in they attacked it and when the chicks hatched the chopper blew them in all directions! There was a mad hunt with patients, wardies, nurses and doctors all trying to find them! They were all retrieved and mum and dad moved them on then!!! Thanks Gini :)

    OOh thats quite funny… A pair of plovers keep nesting right next to a roundabout near us, the mower seems to mow around them all the time, we don’t dare go near, they get very uppity!
