== Descrición ==
 
<!--
Son aves pequenas ou de medio tamaño con corpos compactos, curtos, pescozos grosos e ás longas e xeralmente bicudas, pero a maioría das especies de vanelinos adoitan ter ás arredondadas. Os seus peteiros son xeralmente rectos (excepto no caso do ''[[Anarhynchus frontalis]]'' de [[Nova Zelandia]]) e curtos, as dedas curtas, e a deda traseira pode estar reducido ou ausente, dependendo das especies. A maioría dos Charadriidae teñen tamén colas relativamente curtas, pero o ''[[Charadrius vociferus]]'' é unha excepción. Na maior parte dos xéneros, os sexos son similares, e só hai un pequeno [[dimorfismo sexual]]. En tamaño van desde o ''[[Charadrius collaris]]'', de 26&nbsp;g e 14&nbsp;cm, ao ''[[Vanellus miles]]'', de 368&nbsp;g e 35&nbsp;cm.
They are small to medium-sized [[bird]]s with compact bodies, short, thick necks and long, usually pointed, wings, but most species of lapwing may have more rounded wings. Their bill are usually straight (except for the [[wrybill]]) and short, their toes are short, hind toe could be reduced or absent, depending on species. Most Charadriidae also have relatively short tails, the [[killdeer]] is the exception. In most genera, the sexes are similar, very little sexual dimorphism occurs between sexes. They range in size from the [[collared plover]], at 26&nbsp;grams and {{convert|14|cm|in|abbr=on}}, to the [[masked lapwing]], at {{convert|368|g|lb|abbr=off}} and {{convert|35|cm|in|abbr=on}}.
 
== Distribución e hábitat ==
<!--
They are distributed through open country worldwide, mostly in habitats near water, although there are some exceptions: the [[inland dotterel]], for example, prefers stony ground in the deserts of central and western Australia.<ref name=EoB>{{cite book |editor=Forshaw, Joseph|author= Harrison, Colin J.O.|year=1991|title=Encyclopaedia of Animals: Birds|publisher= Merehurst Press|location=London|pages= 105|isbn= 1-85391-186-0}}</ref>
 
 
[[Charadriinae|Charadriidae]] are protective over their eggs and offspring. The parents protect their young by uttering an alarm call, performing [[distraction display]] and they may even attack the predator or intruder. The chicks are precocial; their parents do not feed them.
