124. The weather forecaster!

DSC_0369

This fellow is commonly found almost all around Gujarat. It was particularly common in Kutch as well, however, it always kept a very safe distance. For a change I did get one good shot of it! πŸ™‚

In many parts of Gujarat and Rajastan, it is believed that if the Red-wattled Lapwing lays eggs on higher ground it means good rains. If it makes a nest and lays eggs on the floor it means the rains will be poor. In someways it is the local weather forecaster for a lot of farmers πŸ˜€
