Crowned Plovers, (Kiewiet: Afrikaans) like many of the wader species breeding in South Africa, have a long breeding season, often starting in August and ending in May. In addition, a pair may have more than one successful breeding attempt. If nests or chicks are lost, further attempts to breed may occur. They lay two eggs in a scrape in the sand, lined with vegetation or small pebbles. The eggs take about a month to hatch and the chicks between four and five weeks to fledge.
Sy laat my dink aan die Afrikaanse liedjie:
Rokkies wil sy dra, maar niemand kyk daarna
en almal staan verslae oor die rokkies wat sy dra,
Oom Jannie se naam is Goggabie, Goggabie, Goggabie,
Oom Jannie se naam is Goggabie, mooi is sy, nie lelik nie!
