The bronze-winged jacana (Metopidius indicus) is a lily-trotter with unmistakable long legs and very long toes. A wader in the family Charadriidae – identifiable by their huge feet and claws which enable them to walk on floating vegetation in the shallow lakes that are their preferred habitat – the bronze-winged jacana breeds in India and southeast Asia.
