Lapwings Puzzle Details:

About: This new puzzle features a pair of lapwings and their nest. The traditional terms `plover`, `lapwing` and `dotterel` were coined long before modern understandings of the relationships between different groups of birds emerged: in consequence, several of the Vanellinae are still often called `plovers`, and the reverse also applies, albeit more rarely, to some Charadriinae (the `true` plovers and dotterels). The birds in this puzzle are Northern Lapwing. The Northern Lapwing (Vanellus vanellus), also known as the Peewit, Green Plover or (in the British Isles) just Lapwing, is a bird in the plover family. It is common through temperate Eurasia. It is highly migratory over most of its extensive range, wintering further south as far as north Africa, northern India, Pakistan, and parts of China. It is a wader which breeds on cultivated land and other short vegetation habitats. 3 – 4 eggs are laid in a ground scrape. The nest and young are defended noisily and aggressively against all intruders, up to and including horses and cattle.

Colorful Mandarin Duck

The mandarin duck is native to East Asia and is closely related to the North American wood duck. The habitats it prefers are the dense, shrubby forested edges of rivers and lakes. In winter, it additionally occurs in marshes, flooded fields, and open rivers. They mainly eat plants and seeds, especially beech mast, but also catch snails, small fish and insects. The adult male has a red bill, large white crescent above the eye and reddish face and "whiskers". It's breast is purple with two vertical white bars, and the flanks ruddy, and he has two orange "sails" at the back.
Grazing Ponies

Grazing Ponies

In today's new jigsaw puzzle we feature two very cute ponies grazing on a green meadow. The word "pony" derives from the old French "poulenet", meaning foal, a young, immature horse, but this is not the modern meaning; unlike a horse foal, a pony remains small when fully grown. Ponies are generally considered intelligent and friendly, though sometimes they also are described as stubborn or cunning.

Wolf in the Snow

If you didn't know, the wolf is one of the world's best known and well researched animals, with probably more books written about it than any other wildlife species. It is the largest extant member of the Canidae. The wolf has very dense and fluffy winter fur, with short underfur and long, coarse guard hairs that help it stay warm during the coldest days of winter. Coat color ranges from almost pure white through various shades of blond, cream, and ochre to grays, browns, and blacks, with variation in fur color tending to increase in higher latitudes.
Moose Sitting

Moose Sitting

Another fun animal puzzle is here. Today's puzzle features a impressive moose sitting on the grass. Moose typically inhabit boreal and mixed deciduous forests of the Northern Hemisphere in temperate to subarctic climates. Unlike most other deer species, moose are solitary animals and do not form herds. Although generally slow-moving and sedentary, moose can become aggressive and move surprisingly fast if angered or startled.
Bullfinch

Bullfinch

The bullfinch is a bulky bull-headed bird. The upper parts are grey; the flight feathers and short thick bill are black; as are the cap and face in adults, and the white rump and wing bars are striking in flight. The adult male has red underparts (like the bird in this jigsaw puzzle), but females and young birds have grey-buff underparts. It lives in mixed woodland, parkland and gardens.

The relations among the members of the herd are very tight; for example when a female gives birth to a baby, the rest of the herd acknowledges it by touching her with their trunks and when an old elephant dies, the rest of the herd stays by the corpse for a while.
