Southern Lapwing - Paraiso, Panama

Southern Lapwing - Paraiso, Panama

There were many of this unusual birds on the golf course at the Radisson Summit Hotel. The Sheen on the wing is great but what you cant see here are the spurs that are used as a warning or possible weapon if threatened. They are also very aggressive when nesting. Thankfully these birds were relaxed during their photo shoot.
