Waterbirds (a term we prefer to waterfowl as the latter implies those that are killed and eaten, stuffed, killed and then stuffed and then eaten, or simply used as stuffing) are members of the Anseriformes order (generally geese, swans, and ducks) but also gulls, herons (see devoted special project), pelicans, and seabirds. Most members of this category have webbed feet for landing on water and swimming, but some are more inclined to wade along the shore (such as dippers and killdeer).
