June 16, 2017 – Black-headed Lapwing or Black-headed Plover (Vanellus tectus)
Found across central Africa from Senegal to Ethiopia and Somalia, these lapwings frequent dry and grassy areas. They eat insects, including their larvae, and gastropods, foraging mostly at night. Their nests are scrapes in the ground and their breeding seasons vary by region. Their calls are described as metallic sounding and similar to those of the Spur-winged Lapwing.
