  9. I've seen blogs on lapwings before but did not realize they had such brilliant coloring! What an amazing bird. So unique. Although we don't have them here in the States and so I've never seen one in real life, I am pretty sure I'd recognize them right away if I were ever lucky enough to go birding in your country.
