The Masked Lapwing commonly occurred in Australia and New Zealand. Even in urban parks it could be observed. And it was not difficult to notice it because it's a huge lapwing, among other lapwings. It weighs about 350 grams and is about 35 cm long. I seldom saw her alone. Maybe it was not in so closely related to flock as it was in case of zebra finches, but if there was seen one masked lapwing feeding, in the area of several dozen, several hundred meters you could probably find another ones. Lapwings flying in a flock were quite noisy. I neglected this species a little and did not take sufficient number of images for the reason it was so widespread. Amazing but true, when such a large number of new species is photographed, voices recorded, it is difficult to control it and to asses if you already have a sufficient number of images or not. Free space left on my memory cards was also important and every day more and more I was afraid of. A dozen cards of more than 300GB memory for such an expedition proved to be too little...
