DID YOU KNOW: SPUR-WINGED LAPWING

The spur-winged lapwing or spur-winged plover (Vanellus spinosus) is a lapwing species, one of a group of largish waders in the family Charadriidae. It is one of several species of wader supposed to be the “trochilus” bird said by Herodotus to have been involved in an unattested cleaning symbiosis with the Nile crocodile.

The spur-winged lapwing breeds around the eastern Mediterranean, and in a wide band from sub-Saharan West Africa to Arabia. The Greek and Turkish breeders are migratory, but other populations are resident. The species is declining in its northern range, but is abundant in much of tropical Africa, being seen at almost any wetland habitat in its range. The spur-winged lapwing is one of the species to which the Agreement on the Conservation of African-Eurasian Migratory Waterbirds (AEWA) applies. These are conspicuous and unmistakable birds. They are medium-large waders with black crown, chest,

foreneck stripe and tail. The face, the rest of the neck and belly are white and the wings and back are light brown. The bill and legs are black. Its striking appearance is supplemented by its noisy nature, with a loud did-he-do-it call. The bird’s common name refers to a small claw or spur hidden in each of its wings. The food of the spur-winged lapwing is insects and other invertebrates, which are picked from the ground.
