Description

Tringa glareola is one of the commonest freshwater waders which commonly known as Wood Sandpiper. This species may be found in multiple habitats of open areas such as swamps, rice fields, old mining pools and mangroves. It feeds on a variety of insects, other invertebrates, small fishes and frogs around freshwater margins. Wood Sandpipers have a smaller size and spotted upper body. Their breasts and necks are white with brown stripes. Its head is dark with pale eyebrow and has long yellowish legs. It also has a shorter bill than other Tringa shorebirds (Strange & Jeyarajasingam, 1993). This bird is a wary and nervous species which will burst into flight if disturbed.
