Oh yes this is a crap photo, I freely admit that, but have you tried to get close to a baby masked lapwing when it has two crazy parents hellbent on keeping you away.

All that flying, flapping, threatening with the spurs and the squeals of distress, I was freaking, a little.

To be honest the parent masked lapwings aren’t too bad with humans, but they do swoop and I wasn’t going to test their tolerance lest I get a spur in the head.

The plan is still to get a better picture than this, it just may take some time.

You have to admit though, he is kind of cute.
