Let's learn about the family Charadriiadae, which includes some of the shorebirds. They are lapwings, plovers, turnstones and killdeer. Actually, the northern lapwing is an Eurasian species, of the Vanellus family. My Audubon water bird guide of 1951 included the lapwing in the Charadriidae family. Because it is such a rare sighting and has been seen in the Buffalo area, I want to include it in this article. I hope you will forgive me.
