The yellow-wattled lapwing (Vanellus malabaricus) has prominent triangular yellow facial wattles at the base of the bill and forehead. Endemic to India, it is usually seen in drier habitats than the red-wattled lapwing. Although they do not migrate, they are known to make seasonal movements in response to rains. During courtship, the yellow-wattled lapwing male produces high frequency notes with fully puffed breast. The female in the vicinity responds by repeated short calls. They make fly and dive display, which culminates in mating on the ground.
