NICK EICHER, HOST: It’ll be awhile before soccer teams in Teaneck, New Jersey can play on their home field.
Officials cordoned off the soccer field with cones and yellow tape.
Players are instructed, keep away.
No, it’s not a crime scene. And there’s actually nothing wrong with the field.
The problem is an unexpected guest recently laid claim to a patch of the pitch near the south goal.
A small bird called a Killdeer laid its eggs there. Relocating them just is not an option.
That’s because Killdeer are protected under American and Canadian laws. So when the baby chicks hatch and leave the nest in a month or so, that’s when soccer can resume.
It’s The World and Everything in It.
