A sandpiper with her eggs

A pair of sandpipers layed for eggs on a parking lot next to my work and defend them with their bodies.

Re: A sandpiper with her eggs

They are nesting on the ground? That is crazy! Should have picked a safer spot!!!

Anyway, good shot. How close did you get?

Re: A sandpiper with her eggs

I think they layed their eggs on the weekend at the lot, when no cars where there- anyhow, you are right: this is a very dangerous spot. I was about 2 meters from them sandpiper and photographed with the 24-105 L Canon lens.

They are red, and her man was attacking me from the air while I was photographing....

Thanks so much for your comments. :

Re: A sandpiper with her eggs

I'm working on bird ID'ing and my instincts were that this was a Plover, not the closely related Sandpipers. It appears to be a Spur-winged Lapwing, aka Spur-winged Plover, having the same markings, description of eggs (blotchy yellowish), lays eggs in gravel/rocks, and lives in your part of the world (eastern Meditteranean).

Russ- thank you so much for identifying the bird. Great detective work!

Eric and Mike- thanks for your comment.
