Shutterday--Little Bird

Two kildeer

OK, not the greatest photo, but Kildeer are new to my "life list" and I was gratified to see them. I took a side trip today to check up on the progress of the demolition of one of Chicago's public housing projects and wound up watching the wildlife that have moved in where a model of urban misery once was. The seagulls were expected but I also saw a flycatcher and these two kildeer. There were also a crop of large thistles in full purple bloom. The flowers are the size of my fist but I didn't get out to take a macro. I do most of my south side photography from the relative safety of my car. I hope the little birds continue to prosper.
