  17. Hello Bob,
    Beautiful pictures of this Lapwing.
    Photo 2 and 5 my favorite, there you can see the legs completely, in the other photos the legs are just not quite there.

  18. Most wonderful photos of this great bird Bob. Hope his feathers will grow back. A Lapwing without feathers on its head is half a Lapwing. ;)
    Regards,
