Red-wattled Lapwing

Vanellus indicus


The characteristic black head, neck and chest can be seen along with the brown wings. Also note the red eyes and long yellow legs.


These birds are found mostly near water, in isolated pairs as far as I have seen.


These birds were very patient and stood still for more than half an hour as I waited and waited to capture them in a different pose. Alas, I had to return due to bad light.
