GUIYANG, March 14 (Xinhua) -- Over 100,000 birds have started leaving a wetland in southwest China's Guizhou Province for their breeding grounds in the north.
Thanks to the additional food prepared by environmental workers at Caohai Lake, a major winter base for migratory birds in southwest China, the birds have survived the winter.
"Last October, we purchased 30 tonnes of corn before the birds arrived," said Qiu Jialing from the management committee of Caohai National Nature Reserve.
