This pattern is particularly evident in Arctic-nesting shorebirds (order Charadriiformes, suborders Scolopaci and Charadrii), which have relatively high daily energy requirements and mostly forage by probing in soft substrates (Kersten and Piersma, 1987; Piersma et al.
If delayed plumage maturation was lacking in the shorebird ancestor, optimization indicated that it arose at least twice, once in Cepphus grylle and once in the most recent common ancestor of Strauch's (1978) plover/gull and sandpiper clades (the Charadrii and Scolopaci, respectively).
