This is another bird from my recent trip to Churchill Island, and another set of pictures taken using the car as a hide.
This bird is a Masked Lapwing - or Vanellus miles. This individual is an example of the species of bird that used to be called "The Spurwing Plover", but has now been 'downgraded' to a race of the species V. miles.
The yellow wattle that hangs from the face is flexible, and I think this one has the lower part of one of the wattles tucked up under the other.
I have to say I really like the colour palette of these images.
