ABSTRACT

............................................................................................................................................................................................................................................

The present study concerns the survey of Yellow-wattled Lapwing in Lucknow district. It is a wader  and its habitats preferences includes any sort of open ground, dry fields and the largest concentrations are found in and near wetlands. It is medium-sized pale brown waders with a black crown which is separated from the brown on the neck by a narrow white band and large yellow facial wattles. It is obligate visual forager, meaning catch its prey at the substrate boundary layers, by picking small invertebrates from the surface or from low vegetation cover. Yellow-wattled Lapwing plays a prominent role in ecosystems. The Yellow-wattled Lapwing contributes to maintaining ecosystem food chain because they regulate and maintain the populations of many invertebrates (Pests) which are harmful for agricultural crops. Yellow-wattled Lapwing is a good example of territorial and social behaviour. The present survey was carried out at winter and summer season during February 2014- March 2015. 


Keywords: Ecosystem, Yellow-wattled Lapwing, Social behavior.
