But at least they look like shorebirds should.  I have no argument with
them being included, if that's what the DNA says, only that it seems odd
to the uninitiated (me) to include them.  I would have expected a tiny
explanation about why they included it.

Hopefully the information about them in the book will be useful to me
one day.  All I have to do is remember that it's in the shorebird book -
not a place I would have expected to find it.
