Soccer field shut down due to tiny bird and its eggs
A busy soccer field in New Jersey has been shut down, all because of one tiny bird and its nest filled with eggs.
The bird, a protected species, set up home near the south goal and local officials can't move the nest without a permit, so they suspended play.
A female killdeer, along with her male partner, made the nest and laid her eggs on an artificial turf field in Teaneck's Votee Park.
Township workers taped off the area so curious onlookers didn't get too close.
