Glareola pratincola (Collared Pratincole)

Wikipedia Abstract

The Collared Pratincole or Common Pratincole (Glareola pratincola) is a wader in the pratincole family, Glareolidae. Pratincoles are unusual among waders in that they typically hunt their insect prey on the wing like swallows, although they can also feed on the ground. The Collared Pratincole is a bird of open country, and is often seen near water in the evening, hawking for insects. It is found in the warmer parts of Europe, southwest Asia and Africa. Its 2–4 eggs are laid on the ground.
