I was parked at a light in the boonies yesterday and about four kildeer were going nuts. Crying all the time and flying up and down. Land, take off. Land, take off. A kildeer's normal defense of the nest is to fake injury and draw off a predetor. It isn't very effective but there you go.
Eventually I realized there was a big crow standing about 20 feet from the little patch of grass they seemed worried about. Just about then, the crow seemed to get annoid by the noise and slowly took off.

Later I saw two quail and what was probably an otter.
I also saw a hawk floating on the high wind right next to the freeway bridge I was on. It put him right at eye level. Hazardous to driving. But seriously cool to see the top of a hawk in flight.
