This was a first sighting for me and the more I look at him, the more I think that this is one of the most beautiful birds that I have ever seen! I just love the subtle variations of tan on his head, neck, and breast; the different shades of blue on his wings, belly and tail; and the contrasting dark brown of the rest of his body! He has a brilliant orange band on his leg, but I removed it in PhotoShop, because I think it's distracting and doesn't look natural.

Next year, I'm not going to wait until the last minute before I do my taxes. Really!

First time that I've seen him on the ground and in good light.

Would you believe that they evolved long toes in order to compensate for only having one leg? I wonder why they're called Lapwings, since they don't have laps.
