African wattled lapwing Picture taken on the banks of the Okovango Delta in Botswana.  And, on a completely different note, despite the picture information, I took this photo in 2005, not 1970 (I have no idea how the 1970 got on there).

African wattled lapwing

  1. Great photo!

    Regarding the date issue, the exif of the image had the value " : : : : " for the capture date. I'm not sure if this was in the image file itself or JungleDragon failed to read it correctly. Either way, I cleared the capture date for now.

    For the technically interested, most computer "date" fields start counting at jan 1, 1970, the so-called "Unix epoch". A date basically is stored as the amount of milliseconds since that moment in time :)

    1. That's interesting. The image is actually a scan of a slide, so there probably is no capture date. But I now know much more about computer date fields than I did when I joined this site! Posted 8 years ago
  2. Funny bird species very well captured :) Posted 8 years ago

The African wattled lapwing or Senegal wattled plover is a large lapwing, a group of largish waders in the family Charadriidae. It is a resident breeder in most of sub-Saharan Africa outside the rainforests, although it has seasonal movements.
