baby Plover ~ masked lapwing
Here they live and breed on the streets amongst other places and generally they survive humans
This little chap has a dried worm wrapped around its leg



They are soo cute :love:
Good idea to keep some snacks close by ;-)a

Thanks Ulrike, just very close (but very dark, as pittas always hang out in dark forest habitat). It’s a baby that lives near the croc pen at Tumbling Waters and seems to be quite comfortable with people around.

This was the best shot I managed to get. Does not have the great feather details like your photo!

Btw, how do you know it's a juvenile?

The white under its chin. Adults are all black there.

You did all right keeping the ISO to 2000. Must have been out in the open! :p

Yes, but I wished I had chosen a different shutter speed to capture more details but then they often get too blurry ;-)a

They certainly are unusual birds in every dimension. Colours, plumage and shape. Attractive though.
You captured that very nicely IMO Ulrike :-)

They are. Like someone gave a class of kindergarten kids some paints and let them loose on a little bird!:-D
