ANDEAN LAPWING Vanellus resplendens
A much more restricted species, confined to the puna and temperate zones
of the Andes, although reasonably common where it occurs. 90% of the poulation
breeds between the equator and the Tropic of Capricorn. Some populations, especially in the
South, are altitudinal migrants and may occur on the coast in winter.
