African Wattled Lapwing, (Vanellus senegalus) The yellow wattle, hanging from the base of the beak, (mandible) is obscured by the stem of a plant in this picture.
The wattle can be seen in this photo. Even though I was very far from them these birds were very wary of me and the dogs.
Here the white crown and the red stripe between the crown and the yellow beak with a black tip, can be seen. The wattle is also visible in this photo.
These photos were taken at extreme range, I found it hard to see the birds with the naked eye and difficult to pick them up in the camera view finder.
This new camera of mine is worth every penny I paid for it.
