    Water birds ………..
    Water birds are a large and varied group of birds. Most are exclusive to fresh water sources such as rivers, lakes, dams and wetlands, however many sea and shore birds can also be regularly found in fresh water, e.g. cormorants and many migratory waders. Water birds include: ducks, geese and swans (Order Anseriformes); grebes ; pelicans, darters and many cormorants Pelecan iformes); herons, ibises, spoonbills and storks (Order Ciconiiformes); cranes, rails, moorhens and coots (Order Gruiformes); and several waders (Order Charadriiformes).

    If you have any birds in, around or under the water, please share… and if you share some from online, please give the photographer credit.
    You find the Killdeer along any stream or river…
