Although quite peripheral to this thread maybe, I  can't help telling you about 
my experience back in 1980 (time flies!)  somewhere in the State of Washington, 
USA: close to a golfcourse I stumbled across the nest of a Killdeer, that to my 
great surprise contained two killdeer eggs and a golf ball! The bird defended 
its nest vigorously, with all the tricks that plovers possess in this regard.
