there is a bird that does the broken wing routine while nesting. Can't think
of it's name right now, sandpiper, something like that. (Auralie where are
Kildeer.  Years ago we used to visit a place in Columbia County, NY with our
aging bird-dog-type mutt, Cindy.  One spring there was a nest of these birds
near the pond on the property.  The male would  do the broken-wing act and
Cindy would chase after him.  They would go round and round the field until
poor Cindy would collapse with fatigue.  At the end of the day, my sons
would have to pick her up and put her in the car, she was so tired and achy
from running after that fool bird all day.
