2 of the 3 Lapwings found by Shari & Larry Zirlin. Very rare visitors from Europe! Digiscoped in very dim light at a terrible distance--my favorite conditions!

Description from Wikipedia

The northern lapwing (Vanellus vanellus), also known as the peewit, pewit, tuit or tew-it (imitative of its cry), green plover (emphasising the colour of the plumage) or (in the British Isles) just lapwing (which refers to its peculiar, erratic way of flying), is a bird in the lapwing family. It is common through temperate Eurasia.
