Black-winged Lapwing

Vanellus melanopterus (Cretzschmar, 1829)

The Black-winged Lapwing (or Greater Black-winged Lapwing) is an east African species that is found from the Ethiopian highlands in the north to central Kenya (race V. m. melanopterus), and again at middle to coastal elevations in eastern South Africa (race V. m. minor). It is a habitat specialist of short grass in well-watered temperate grasslands. They may move about locally to find ideal situations, often at night. In their tightly grouped flying flocks they resemble Plovers. Source: Wikipedia
