Wading Birds, Wading Bird Pictures

Pictures of wading birds, including coots, cormorants, geese, ducks, penguins, seagulls, and swans. Wading birds wade into water to eat fish, but do not swim, like ducks. They have long, skinny legs.

Wading birds are mostly a part of the order Ciconiiformes. Wading birds are characterized by their long, thin legs that help them stand in water and their large bills that aid in their fishing. Some examples of wading birds include:

·         Herons

·         Storks

·         Egrets

·         Ibises

·         Spoonbills

·         Flamingos
