Their long, curved beak serves as a probe to find worms and crustaceans in mud. Their toes are widespread to give them balance as they wade.

They often nest on mangrove islands. The male collects materials for the nest while the female builds it. Round 2 to 4 eggs are incubated for 21 days and both parents care for their young.
