Crab Plover – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Crab Plover (Dromas ardeola) is a bird related to the waders, but sufficiently distinctive to merit its own family Dromadidae. Its relationship within the Charadriiformes is unclear (del Hoyo et al), some have considered it to be closely related to the thick-knees, or the pratincoles, while others have considered it closer to the auks and gulls.
