== Comportamento e ecoloxía ==
They hunt by sight, rather than by feel as longer-billed waders like [[snipe]] do. Foods eaten include aquatic and terrestrial invertebrates such as insects, worms, [[molluscs]] and [[crustaceans]] depending on habitat, and are usually obtained by a run-and-pause technique, rather than the steady probing of some other wader groups. They also feed on plant material.
[[Charadriinae|Charadriidae]] are protective over their eggs and offspring. The parents protect their young by uttering an alarm call, performing [[distraction display]] and they may even attack the predator or intruder. The chicks are precocial; their parents do not feed them.
