The African Wattled Lapwing or Senegal Wattled Plover (Vanellus senegallus), is a resident breeder in most of sub-Saharan Africa outside the rainforests. These are conspicuous and unmistakable birds. They are large brown waders with a black crown, white forehead and large yellow facial wattles. The tail is white, tipped black, and the long legs are yellow. In flight, African Wattled Lapwings’ upperwings have black flight feathers and brown coverts separated by a white bar. The underwings are white with black flight feathers. This species is a common breeder in wet lowland habitats, especially damp grassland.
