redshank definition and meaning

What is a "redshank"?

The redshank is a wading bird found in wetland habitats across Europe and Asia. It is characterized by its slender body, long reddish legs, and distinctive red legs and bill. With its elegant appearance and loud, melodious call, the redshank is a notable presence in coastal areas, estuaries, and marshes. It forages for food by probing its long bill into the mud, feeding on small invertebrates and insects. During the breeding season, the redshank displays elaborate courtship rituals, including aerial displays and vocalizations, to attract a mate. It is known for its agitated behavior when its nesting territory is threatened, emitting warning calls and performing distraction displays to protect its young.
