Representatives of this family nest in the thickets of reeds or reeds, which gives a certain protection against natural enemies. Thanks to their strong paws with widearranged fingers, shepherds can quickly run around the swampy area. Birds feed on small fish, crustaceans and invertebrates. Representatives of this family are quite rarely flying and I prefer to lead a night lifestyle.
Other birds of the shepherd
Pastushkovs can be found in many areas of Eurasia, which have enough suitable reservoirs. These birds tolerate climate changes well and can nest in almost any conditions. They rarely leave the thickets of reed plants, warning relatives about the approach of the predator with loud sounds. Shepherdies are very noisy birds, which is quite strange, because they prefer to rarely appear to their eyes and rather shy. Almost a dozen species of these birds live in Eurasia and they are represented in a fairly large number.
