Ibisbill and mandarin ducks in China


This 2010 video says about itself:

Still 6 April 2018 in Shaanxi province in China. After the birds we saw in the morning, in the afternoon we went in search of this rare species, the ibisbill.

We looked at a river bank, where the ibisbill may live. We did not see it, though we did see sixteen black-winged stilts.
