Usually it's much harder to see the eggs against the stony, gravelly background that the birds usually select as a nesting site. I worry that these eggs will be more visible to predators since they show up against the grass.
Here is the bird, doing its best to distract me from the nest:
As soon as I retreated, the bird went back to the nest. If the eggs survive, I hope to get some pictures of the tiny hatchlings when they arrive later in May - they're miniature adults and move very fast within hours of hatching although it's a while until they can fly.
