Earlier in the week while walking along Jindabyne Street in Duffy I was
swooped repeatedly by two Masked Lapwings - thought they must have
nest/eggs somewhere nearby but was too busy dodging and weaving to
locate it.  However when driving along the same street today I was able
to slow down and scan the area, and found a singe chick foraging along
the upper side nature strip.  A single adult bird was standing sentinel
on a nearby mound, ever ready to swoop trespassers. I wonder what the
chances are for the chicks survival in that urban environment.
