rekhyt: 

The rekhyt is a bird called the Lapwing. At the beginning it was used to indicate the people of Lower Egypt, then it became the symbol of all Egyptians. Therefore, it was represented either under the feet of the pharaoh or adoring his cartouche to signify that the people are his subjects.
