Javan Lapwing, Javanese Lapwing, Sunda Plover
Vanellus macropterus by Gloria Chadwick(8 in. x 8 in. | Acrylic | ID#4247)
Family: CHARADRIIDAE | Conservation Status: Critically Endangered | Population Trend: unknown
These wonderful birds have been a favorite of mine since I first discovered them in an exhibit at the San Diego Zoo. Long legs and yellow wattle lend a little comedy if it weren’t for the fact that they are among the endangered facing extinction.
