Springtime for killdeers

Everyone is all happy today because the weather is clear and sunny on the first day of spring.  So, enjoy the photos.  This first one is of a couple that I am not sure of.  But, I think it might be Secret's son and, possibly, Killer and Dee's daugther.

Below, Shy is being really curious:

This killdeer looks familiar, but I'm not sure who it is.  I think it's the male that I saw Squeak with a few days ago.  He's all alone.  

Below are two naughty killdeer digging nesting holes in the ballfield.  It's Squeak and she's chosen Pollux as a mate.  Look how dirty Pollux is from digging.

Here is one of the holes that Pollux scraped out.  He had others nearby, all in a bad spot:

Saw a sora today:

Baby Goose has been flying all over the place.  I called him over and he swam by to see if I had any treats.  I have a feeling that this one might leave us to go north:

Spoonface still has his ring around his neck:

Cinnamon and four of her five boyfriends:

A boy band:

We have a new gadwall and he's sticking around where that old one got killed by the owl.

These two female shovelers are head-bobbing this brightly colored male:

I saw Pepper and his cousin:

A wigeon:

Or two:

And, finally, a rabbit:

Also seen:  Not-Pepper and the rest of the domestic ducks, plus a brightly colored male cinnamon teal of which I couldn't get a photo.
