Red Wattled Lapwing ~
Kingdom: Animalia
Phylum: Chordata
Class: Aves
Order: Charadriiformes
Family: Charadriidae
Genus: Vanellus
Species: V. indicus

The Red-wattled Lapwing
( Vanellus indicus ) is a lapwing or
large plover, a wader in the family
Charadriidae . It has characteristic
loud alarm calls which are
variously rendered as did he do it
or pity to do it leading to
colloquial names like the did-he-
do-it bird.Usually seen in pairs
or small groups not far from water
but may form large flocks in the
non-breeding season (winter).

Red-wattled Lapwings are large
waders, about 35 cm long. The
wings and back are light brown
with a purple sheen, but head and
chest and front part of neck are
black. Prominently white patch
runs between these two colours,
from belly and tail, flanking the
neck to the sides of crown. Short
tail is tipped black. A red fleshy
wattle in front of each eye, black-
tipped red bill, and the long legs
are yellow. In flight, prominent
white wing bars formed by the
white on the secondary coverts.

Excellent close-up image of this RW Lapwing, Lovish.
Very sharp focus on the eye, which is a must in a bird picture.
Very good details on plumage.
Well done and keep it up!

Hello Lovish
Great capture of this species. Great composition, wonderful natural colours and excellent sharpness.
Maybe a little brighter could be better but I'm looking from my cell fone. Wonderful picture.
Thank You
Have a good Sunday!
Best regards
