Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

An elegant, rather small lapwing. Pale sandy-brown overall with long, bright yellow legs. In flight a striking tri-colored wing pattern of brown, black, and white is exposed. Its tail is all white, unlike Sociable Lapwing that may look similar in flight save for its black-tipped tail. Often seen in heavily vegetated wetlands.
