Red Wattled Lapwing (Manipuri Name - Salangkak)

Bharatpur - Jan 2012

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[2] leading to colloquial names like the did-he-do-it bird.[3] Usually seen in pairs or small groups not far from water but may form large flocks in the non-breeding season (winter)
