Stlit dad diverts attention

A Black-Necked Stilt (Himantopus mexicanus mexicanus) checks me out because I was getting too close to the chicks.  He would fly over to try to divert my attention,  then land far from the brushes where the chicks were hiding.  There he would screech to get me to look toward him.
