Distant Migrations of Shorebirds
. . .Shorebirds born in the north, Siberia and Alaska, migrate to Southeast Asia and the southern hemisphere before the cold sets in. When spring comes, they make the trip back to their birthplaces. Even these birds with tremendous endurance need an intermediate place to rest and refuel before continuing their 10,000+ kilometer migration.
. . Unfortunately, due to development in these intermediate areas, China, Korea and Japan, tidal flats are disappearing and the shorebirds are in a very difficult situation.
