What Are Waterbirds?

The term "waterbird" refers to bird species dependent on aquatic habitats to complete portions of their life cycles. Waterbirds can be further characterized by other non-technical terms relating to where they typically forage.

seabirds -- primarily feeding in open ocean; often colonial.

coastal waterbirds -- primarily utilizing the interface between land and both salt and fresh water; often colonial.

wading birds -- principally feeding by wading in fresh or brackish waters; often colonial.

marshbirds -- often secretive, feeding in primarily fresh waters

private album

As stated on my "Animal Albums collected" page, albums with "private attach only" set to Yes will be detached from my list.

(I also see few close-ups and no mountains, so I wouldn't attach this page to either of those two albums either.)

Parents refers to a larger category under which an object falls. For example, theAconcagua mountain page has the 'Aconcagua Group' and the 'Seven Summits' asparents and is a parent itself to many routes, photos, and Trip Reports.
