Abstract
The observation on parental behavior of Red Wattled Lapwing was observed during March -April 2021 in Vrindavan Nagar of Sikar nearby a small pool. Clutch size of 2 eggs were recorded in the ground nest. The hatching success was 100 %. The bird shows meticulous parental care by protecting her eggs and hatchlings. As the eggs are laid on the ground both the parent Lapwings are vigilant day and night. They constantly make alarm noises at a higher pitch and a soft sound for guiding the hatchlings. Behaviour of both the parents were observed during protecting and imprinting hatchlings. The present study focuses on the need to conserve the Red Wattled Lapwing biodiversity so that the ecological balance is maintained and bird ecotourism is boosted in Sikar.
