Q: I've noticed that five of my uploads have " Hot" in front of the caption. Why are they caterogized that way ?

The Masked Lapwing (Vanellus miles) previously known as the Masked Plover and often called the Spur-winged Plover in its native range, is a large, common and conspicuous bird native to Australia, particularly the northern and eastern parts of the continent. It spends most of its time on the ground searching for food such as insects and worms and has several distinctive calls. The birds have a wide range of calls which can be heard at any time of the day or night: the warning call, a loud defending call, courtship calls, calls to its young, and others. Since this bird lives on the ground it is always alert and even though it rests it never sleeps properly.

    Handsome creature. The flappy jaws make me think of a turkey wattle.
