The family, Scolopacidae, is made up of 15 genera. In this section we cover the Curlews and Godwits (genera – Numenius and Limosa). In addition we have placed the genera Bartramia in this section, as they are in the tribe with Curlews and Godwits and Prosobonia which sits in the same Subfamily (Tringinae). The Shanks, also in the family Scolopacidae and the Subfamily Tringinae have been placed in a separate section to make it easier to navigate through the directory.
