Killdeer chicks successfully hatch in Hoboken, NJ
Here’s a nice update for the Killdeer bird family over on the green roof of the old Hostess building uptown: All four eggs hatched!
Little Killdeer chicks running around, will fly soon!
The Killdeer Birds are they type that essentially come out of the egg “ready to walk.” And from what I understand, these little guys will be flying 7-10 days later as well!
Most of the time, these cute birds quickly leave home for good, and set up elsewhere, but it’s not uncommon that they also nest near where they’re born.
These rascals were hard to track down, and they were energetic and didn’t sit still – but I managed to get a few seconds where three of the four chicks were in the same area.
