Blacksmith Lapwings are very boldly patterned and unlikely to be confused with other species in the region. They have very distinctive black, white and grey plumage and black legs.
Sexes are alike but the male has longer wing spurs.
Juveniles black plumage is slightly browner.
Call is a metallic "klink-klink-klink" like the blacksmith's hammer on an anvil.
