Masked Lapwing & their Chick

The noise the adult Masked Lapwing made was so loud. It is what alerted me to the chicks :) There were three chicks and two adults. They were extremely protective of their young.
Beautiful image...

We have these birds around our property, but this is the first time I’ve seen a chick.

@yorkshirekiwi I had never seen a chick until today, when I was blessed with seeing three! I just could not catch them all in the one photo :)

They are the most bizarre looking bird. Our Plovers are extremely protective and aggressive at the moment, chicks are scurrying everywhere :)

yes the plovers are very loud and protective as their nests are on the ground and they don't fly that well, so they seem to make up for it with their voice :) lovely to see a healthy chick!
