Andean Lapwing Vanellus resplendens


Demography and Populations

All Andean Lapwings fall under Vanellus resplendens Tschudi. Populations in the southern limit of their range (northern Argentina and Chile) can be found at lower elevations during the breeding season, though it is unknown if this is a group that could be considered distinct from the northern population (Piersma and Wiersma).
