After waiting patiently for 24-28 days, our Killdeer eggs finally hatched. 3 hatched last evening and the last one this morning. I was lucky enough to go out at the right time to see the little guys running around. The last one hatched and is just drying off so will be off soon too.
I’ve also added a couple of hawk chick photos and a Eurasian Collared Dove and Kingbird shot that I took while I was outside.
Below are some more White Tail Deer photos captured by my wildlife camera from July 3-17/16

Great stuff. The young kildeer do look cute!
What footage! Newly hatched Kildeer, I’ve never seen that before. Amazing they survived that long to hatch finally. Must be the camoflauge and you looking after them!
I didn’t notice the mother singing so I went out to have a look and they are all gone. I guess they were waiting for the 4th one to hatch and be strong enough. I have no idea where she took her youngsters.
Funny how seeing your pics of the kildeers made me remember seeing their nests in front of our place on the Ottawa River when I was a kid. Had never really thought they were anything but a local bird, didn’t know they are all the way out your way. Great that they all made it. In another 5 weeks we’ll be moving away from here and will lose all the critters we’ve come to look forward to seeing every morning. Already cut back on the duck food, down to 3 mallards that still come by. Thanks and good to see your posts.
