Abstract

We discovered a Killdeer (Charadrius vociferus) incubating a nest containing three Mountain Plover (Charadrius montanus) eggs and three Killdeer eggs. The nest had been incubated about two weeks when discovered and was depredated three days later. To our knowledge this is the first known occurrence of a nest having eggs from both species.
