As it's World Bird Wednesday, I posted the first of the many birds I photographed while on safari recently.
Below is a very interesting bird: the African Wattled Lapwing (previously known as African Wattled Plover) It's a large grey-brown bird (the largest African plover) with distinctive
yellow wattles hanging from the front of the eyes. There are smaller red wattles above the yellow ones. The forehead is white, the centre of the chin is black and the face and neck are streaked with black.
A thin black line seperates the brown chest and upper belly. The legs and feet are yellow
The bill is yellow with a black tip and the bird has a distinctive upright stance
I photographed this bird in the Masaai Mara Game reserve.
