Abstract:

This study documented some aspects of breeding biology and egg parameters of Red-Wattled Lapwing (Vanellus indicus) such as nest structure, nesting material, breeding season, clutch size, egg parameters, incubation period, hatching success in agricultural fields of village Ramnagaria, Sirsa, Haryana. During breeding season the male bird selected the territory. Both male and female took part in building nest. The nest was a circular depression encircled by stones or pieces of hard clay. Egg length, egg width, egg weight, egg volume, egg shape index and egg specific gravity observed were 40mm, 30.17mm, 20.27gm 16.63ml, 75.42 and 1.21g/cm3 respectively. The incubation period of 27 days was completed by both parents. The hatching success observed was 75%. Both parents protected the territory and protected their young ones completely till became good fliers. The hatchlings were able to fly within 21-27 days after hatching. The overall breeding activities were completed within 64-77 days.
