adult broken wing distraction disp.

A killdeer mother attempts to distract a suspected predator from her nest by pretending to have a broken wing. Killdeer adults are notorious for these broken wing distraction displays because they seek out gravel habitats including roadsides and roofs to breed on. This tends to bring their eggs and young into closer proximity with humans. The adult will try valiantly to lure a mammalian intruder away from their brood with this showy display.
