Among the stones

On the way home from work tonight, I noticed a Killdeer (Charadrius vociferus) flying low over a field.  It reminded me of this Killdeer nest that I photographed a couple of years ago.  The patterning on the eggs looked remarkably similar to the little pieces of granite scattered around the nest site.

Interesting that they are pointy like guillemot eggs but these guys don't nest on cliffs.
