are there any birds in china

Fairy flycatchers edit

While some members of this small family live in tropical Asia, the majority of its species are found in Africa. They are not closely related to other birds called “flycatchers”.

Honeyguides edit

Honeyguides are among the few birds that feed on wax. They get their name from the larger honeyguide, which guides conventional honey-hunters to bees’ nests and then feeds on the honey that remains in the hive once the hunters have collected their honey.

  • Yellow-rumped honeyguide, Indicator xanthonotus

Bulbuls edit

Bulbuls are medium-sized songbirds. While some have bright features such as orange, red, or yellow vents, cheeks, throats, or supercilia, the majority have dull plumage ranging from olive-brown to black. Some species have distinct crests.

Boobies and gannets edit

The sulids comprise the gannets and boobies. These two groups consist of medium-sized to large coastal seabirds that dive for fish.

Does China have wild parrots?

For nearly 100 years, the rare parrot was believed to have disappeared in China. That is, until April 2015, when seven birds were spotted in Yingjiang County in southwest China’s Yunnan Province, convincing scientists and bird lovers that they still have a population in China.
