Day-old killdeer chick

Went down to my "bird park" this afternoon to check on the killdeer nest, and was hugely surprised and thrilled to find they'd just hatched yesterday, and all 4 chicks were foraging with their parents in the area around the nest. I shot over 250 photos! Near the end of the session, a crow tried to snatch one of the chicks, but the parents immediately mobbed the crow as the chicks ran of in 4 different directions. One of them scurried toward where I was standing, and came within 10-12 feet, where I got these shots. Talk about a golden opportunity!!
