Places for Birding

Yunnan boasts a large number of birds, which accounts for a big part of the species in China as it’s mild around the year. Every winter, a flock of red-billed gull migrate from the chill north to Yunnan. Kunming is just the right place for watching sea gull. You will see them hovering over the rivers and lakes. Besides, Xishuangbanna, Dehong, Ruili and Lijiang is also the popular places for bird watching. In addition, Gaoligongshan is the woodlands near there where we’ll search for another speciality, Yunnan Nuthatch. Nearby we’ll also hunt for Lady Amherst’s Pheasant, the severely threatened White-speckled Laughingthrush, Rufous-tailed Babbler and Black-bibbed.
