Yep...

Don't fuck with spur wing plovers...

It's part of my wife's job though.

She finds that more dangerous than the snake catching part of her job.

I thought they wanted a pat !! I put a post up near their nest so the eggs wouldn't get squashed by the cattle.They accepted that and were fine with me near the nest but when they hatched FM ! Look out they took an instant dislike to me ! Now I have to use the horse as protection to go to the river !

We used to get them laying eggs on the roof of our apartment (flat roof covered in white pebbles) then the little balls of feathers would fall down into the balcony below.
If you went out to see what the fuss was about you would come under sustained attack.
We used to collect the young ones up in a box and take them down to a grassy area near the pool the parents would find them very quickly and move them on.

They are relentless when they attack

Nuke them from orbit, it's the only way to be sure.

My Dad told me a story about how a kid he knew in school was killed in a sustained SW Plover attack. Kid was caught in a open field and they just kept cutting him till he bled out.
Might have only been a story ... but that hand makes a fella wonder.

After the emu, they've gotta be the stupidest bird in the world! Why the fcuk would you lay your eggs on the ground? My old man was a greenkeeper and had heaps of problems with them nesting in the middle of the fairways. I've even seen them nesting in a driveway in a suburban backyard. 8 tonne Mitsubishis sort 'em out pretty quickly!

Good thing you did put your hand up. When I was young another kid in Gympie (I still see him around occasionally) lost an eye in a plover attack.

They hate water pistols, and lengths of chain swung above your head, and........ what else did we used to terrorise them with when we were kids.
The neighbours get a nest in their front yard about 1' from the driveway every year.
