wader definition and meaning

What is a "wader"?

A wader refers to a group of birds known for their long legs and specialized adaptations for foraging in shallow water habitats. These birds, including species like sandpipers, plovers, and curlews, can be found along coastlines, marshes, and mudflats. With their slender bodies and elongated bills, waders are well-equipped for probing and feeding on small invertebrates, such as worms, mollusks, and crustaceans. Their long legs allow them to navigate through wet and muddy environments with ease, while their intricate plumage provides effective camouflage. Waders play a vital ecological role, contributing to nutrient cycling and supporting a diverse array of coastal and wetland ecosystems. Their presence adds both beauty and diversity to these habitats, making them a cherished sight for nature enthusiasts.
