P1160104The Masked Lapwing is a large plover with yellow facial wattles that make it look like it is dressed forĀ a Mardi-Gras parade. I am particularly fond of these birds as they seem to just potter about, happy to peck at the ground and mind their own business. They wander in grassy spaces, whether suburbia or the parklands and seem to emit a radiant calm.
