What's a poor mother to do?

You find a good mate, carefully pick a site, sculpt a nice nest amongst those hard old crushed rocks, lay 4 eggs coordinated to match the rocks, array the eggs just so with the pointy ends down and in, keep them nice and warm day and night rain or shine.

Then some jerk nearly steps in the nest.

And has the gall to come back later with a camera 'cause he thinks the whole thing is a work of art.

Sheesh man - it's a freakin' NEST! What's a poor mother to do? Freak OUT!
