The three attached photos tell the story. The nest is located on a column of dirt the top of which is the original ground elevation that now has been graded down for runway 7-25. Workers from M & M along with engineers from Terra and Envirologic conspired to mark and preserve the nest. This perhaps is a world record for the most elevated Killdeer nest in North America.”[/builder_content]
