A medium-sized bird in the sandgrouse family  is the pin-tailed sandgrouse (Pterocles alchata)It has a robust, compact body with a petite, pigeon-like head and neck. Long, pointed wings with a white underside, a  long tail, and a swift, direct flight are its other  features. At first light, flocks travel to drinking  places. Loud kattar-kattars are used in the call. This social species nests on arid, open plains devoid of trees and other habitats. A ground scrape serves as its nest, where two  to three cream-colored eggs with mysterious  markings are placed. The eggs are Incubated by both sexes.The pin-tailed sandgrouse measures approximately 35 centimetres (14 in) in length. Its upper sections and head are a yellowish-green colour. White underparts with a chestnut breast band dividing the belly from the green neck make up this species. Although the two sexes are somewhat similar, the female can hide better and has a shorter tail than the male. There are two subspecies; P. a. caudacutus breeds in northwest Africa, the Middle East, and southeastern Asia, while P. a. alchata breeds in southern Europe. It is a seasonal partial migrant, with some Asian birds migrating to northern Pakistan and the Middle East in the winter. The females of the eastern race have white wing coverts rather than yellow ones, while the males have duller underparts than the European species. ( Wikipedia)

Small plover species include the little ringed  plover (Charadrius dubius). A yellowish bird reported in the Vulgate of the fourth century is  given the genus name Charadrius, which is derived from Late Latin.  It comes from the Greek word kharadrios,  which refers to a bird found in river valleys  (kharadra, “ravine”). 

Since Sonnerat, writing in 1776, it is believed that this bird might just be a variation  of the common ringed plover, the particular  name dubius is Latin for questionable.(Wikipedia)

Marine bird Sula nebouxii, also known as the blue-footed booby, is a native of the subtropical and tropical parts of the eastern Pacific Ocean. It belongs to one of the six booby species in the genus Sula. Its unique brilliant blue feet, which are a sexually chosen characteristic, are instantly noticeable. Males strut before the female while lifting their feet up and down in an intricate courting dance. The female can be up to 90 cm (35 in) length and have a wingspan up to 1.5 m, making her significantly larger than the male (5 ft). ( Wikipedia)
