Those are waterlife-dependent birds. They are adapted to seek food and nest near the seashores, marshes, lakes, rivers and other bodies of water. Some can swim and dive (for instance cormorant or coot), other will swim but can't dive (a seagull), yet anothers can do neither; those will wade, stalk and spear their prey (like stork or heron). The wide variety of all those fascinating bird sorts are frequent prey to our cameras. Show us what you have caught! PLEASE READ ALL THE RULES CAREFULLY. I hate having to disqualify a photo just because of an oversight...
