The Masked Lapwing is quite distinctive with the yellow wattles across their eyes and hanging down below their beak.
They are found mainly in open short grass areas whic are near swamps, lagoons, mudflats, urban parks and gardens.
The Masked Lapwing is a ground feeding bird feeding on worms and insects.
They breed from July to December, making a nest in a scrape, laying 3-4 eggs a year. We saw them in the Royal Botanic Gardens in Sydney Australia.
