g'day all,
Some years ago a writer to Birding-Aus postulated that all Waders are actually the one species !
.. but there are many races ! !
(can anyone find that posting in the archives ?)
Seriously, ID of a Waders is a challenge.
I have started a simple ID comparison table for a range of Waders seen in Qld.
It is size sequence for a start !
Please contact me for a copy. I am seeking feedback from the experts out in civilisation.
It is in Microsoft Word format.

ps A Tern ID Table is available from
