The river lapwing (Vanellus duvaucelii) is rarely found more than 300m from a large river. It breeds from the Indian Subcontinent eastwards to Southeast Asia, nesting on shingle and sand banks from March to June. Adults of both sexes are similarly plumaged, but males are slightly larger than females. Previously named the Spur-winged Plover, the River Lapwing is a striking species with real spurs on its wings used during duels with fellow River Lapwings.
