CommentI was leaning against my car parked on a riverside pathway when I saw this adult Masked Lapwing and 3 chicks some distance away. I just kept snapping them as they got nearer, but when a jogger ran up and scared them, the parent called the alarm and the 3 chicks went scurrying for shelter. They then made a collective hasty retreat down the river bank where I couldn't follow them.
