Wader Dates

2nd Feb is celebrated as the World Wetland Day. Here's wishing a very happy Wetland Day to all wildlife enthusiasts!

Waders or shorebirds perform a very important role in maintaining the health of wetlands. They feed on aquatic insects, crustaceans and mollusks and help regulate invertebrate populations, while themselves serving as prey for carnivores such as falcons, mongooses and wild cats. Owing to the minute differences between most wader species, these birds often pose an identification challenge to amateur birders like me!
