A rare grassland bird

It is found mainly on the dry plains of peninsular India and has a sharp call and is capable of fast flight. Like other lapwings and plovers, they are ground birds and their nest is a mere collection of tiny pebbles within which their well camouflaged eggs are laid. The chicks are leaving the nest shortly after hatching and following their parents to forage for food.

How To Explore

Can be seen in their breeding time, which is in dry season with peak breeding in March to May ahead of the monsoons. Parents visit water and wet their breast feathers ("belly soaking"; they may stay for as much as 10 minutes to soak water which may then be used to cool the eggs or chicks).

Recommended Time & Duration

All round the year.
