In Yunnan’s western county of Yingjiang that borders Myanmar, the "bird-watching economy" is booming in winter, and a total of 650 bird species have been recorded. Among them, hornbills are liked by local folks and bird-watching photographers alike.

Thanks to its mild climate, Yunnan is also a major habitat for migratory birds to spent winter, with red-billed gulls most visible in provincial capital of Kunming and black-necked cranes in northeastern city of Zhaotong.
