The Ordinary Greenshank (Tringa nebularia) is a wader in the large family Scolopacidae, the typical waders. Its bordering relative is the Greater Yellowlegs, together with which and the Spotted Redshank it forms a close-knit group. Among them, these three species show all the vital leg and foot colours establish in the shanks, demonstrating that this character is paraphyletic (Pereira & Baker, 2005).
