Random information on the term “Wading bird”:
Charadriiformes (from Charadrius, the type genus of family Charadriidae) is a diverse order of small to medium-large birds. It includes about 350 species and has members in all parts of the world. Most charadriiform birds live near water and eat invertebrates or other small animals; however, some are pelagic (seabirds), others frequent deserts, and a few are found in dense forest.
The order was formerly divided into three suborders:
The Sibley-Ahlquist taxonomy lumps all the Charadriiformes together with other seabirds and birds of prey into a greatly enlarged order Ciconiiformes. However, the resolution of the DNA-DNA hybridization technique used by Sibley & Ahlquist was not sufficient to properly resolve the relationships in this group, and indeed it appears as if the Charadriiformes constitute a single large and very distinctive lineage of modern birds of their own.
The auks, usually considered distinct because of their peculiar morphology, are more likely related to gulls, the “distinctness” being a result of adaptation for diving. Following recent research, a better arrangement may be as follows:
Random information on the term “IBIS”:
The Hinkler Ibis was a British two-seat wooden “amphibian” monoplane designed and built by the Australian aviator Bert Hinkler while working in the United Kingdom.
Hinkler designed and built the Ibis with the assistance of R.H. Bound at Hamble Aerodrome in Hampshire. The wing was designed by Basil Henderson and built by Hendy Aircraft at Shoreham Airport. It was a two-seat high-wing monoplane made of wood and powered by two 40 hp (30 kW) Salmson AD.9 radials. The two engines were strut mounted back-to-back above the fuselage, one driving a pusher propeller, the other a tractor propeller. The Ibis registered G-AAIS was first flown from Hamble in May 1930 and later stored in the garden of Hinkler’s house in Southampton. According to the aircraft’s registration with the Civil Aviation Authority, it was deregistered in December 1933. In 1953, it was found in a semi-derelict condition in the garden but was scrapped in 1959.
