Lapwing is a type of wading bird that belongs to the family of plovers. It can be found in the temperate regions of Eurasia. Lapwing inhabits marshes, flooded areas, pastures, grasslands and fallow fields. Lapwings are also known as "peewits" due to characteristic high-pitched calls "pee-wit" which males produce during the mating season.
