chinese crested tern

chinese legend bird

一直被認為已消失的黑嘴端鳳頭燕鷗,竟然再現中華!因為牠們被濫採鳥蛋,導致其數量稀少,在近60年亦沒有觀察記錄,所以有「神話之鳥」之稱。研究估計牠們一直生活於馬祖(一個軍事禁區)而沒有被發現,但相信數量也只餘50隻左右,現在那一區域已立為保護區。另外有保育團體亦推出恢復計畫,於浙江省鐵墩島放置發聲假燕鷗模型來吸引群居的牠們到島上繁殖,而現在已有13隻幼鳥成功孵化。
the chinese crested tern was thought extinct until they reappeared in the recent years. due to hunting and egg collection for food, these birds wasn’t recorded for over 60 years. researchers believed they have been living on the Matsu Islands ( a military restricted area in taiwan), but there are only around 50 of them, and now that area has became a conservation area for the birds. on the other side, other groups are working on a restoration project; by placing tern models with playbacks of their calls, they successfully attracted the terns to breed on the islands in the Fujian Province with 13 new born chicks so far.
