Wading Bird Fauna Nature Ardea Alba Souvenir Sheet Mint NH 

The term "wading bird" describes a wide range of species in all sizes, shapes, and colors, but what unique characteristics do wading birds have in common, and why is it important for birders to understand what these birds are?

Types of Wading Birds
Quickly identifying the overall type of a bird is essential for proper identification, and wading birds can be easy to distinguish. A wide range of bird species are loosely classified as waders, including:

Some field guides may also classify some shorebirds, particularly avocets, like waders, along with gulls or terns, and they do share some characteristics with more widely recognized wading birds.

Wading Bird Geography
Wading birds are found throughout the world on every continent except Antarctica. They can be found in both freshwater and saltwater areas, though more species tend to favor freshwater habitats. Bogs, marshes, mudflats, shorelines, ponds, and flooded areas are all popular habitats for wading birds, and they can even be found in urban and suburban areas such as along golf course ponds, retention ponds or seasonal swamps. While most species of waders prefer very wet habitats, some, especially cranes, are found in areas with widely varying water levels.
