- I recently monitored the hatching of four killdeer chicks from my office overlooking the roof of the Pepper Building in downtown Tallahassee. (for 3 weeks I had my scope set up on the nesting adults much to the amusement of my co-workers.) this was the second year in a row chicks were seen. After hatching on April 17 and last being seen late Friday April 19th they have not been seen again. I am afraid I should have intervened and relocated them as they must have fallen off the roof.
