Shorebirds

Shorebirds are often (but not always) found along beaches, lakes, marshes, creeks and rivers. In some regions, shorebirds are considered as ‘wading birds’, but in this presentation, the term ‘wader’ applies to egrets and herons. Images here include sandpipers curlews, dowitchers, plovers, tattlers, snipes, phalaropes, yellowlegs, knots and some others.
