Eurasian Thick Knee
The Stone Curlew or Eurasian Stone-curlew Burhinus oedicnemus is a northern species of the Burhinidae (stone-curlew) bird family also known as Eurasian Thick knee.
It is a medium-sized wader with a strong yellow and black beak, large yellow eyes (which give it a "reptilian", or "goggle-eyed" appearance), and cryptic plumage. The bird is striking in flight, with black and white wing markings.
This Bird was photographed by me in Lucknow,Uttar Pradesh ,India and has been sighthed in this part after a gap of four five years as per my experienced birding friends.
