A family of kildeer were spotted in the Food City parking lot in Jonesborough recently. The birds made their nest in a gravel island in the store’s parking lot and have since increased their brood to include four babies. The birds blend in with the landscape and can be hard see at first, but get too close and the mama bird is sure to send shoppers running. In addition to protecting her young from foot traffic, the mama bird was spotted last week standing over her babies to offer them some much-needed shade during the hot afternoon.
