Birds Without Borders: Black-Faced Spoonbills
Found nowhere else on earth but the last few pockets of wilderness along East Asia’s rugged coastline, the black-faced spoonbill is the only spoonbill regarded as endangered. Twice a year, this enigmatic bird undertakes a behemoth migration that navigates through the heart of Asia.The route is full of danger from predators, the elements, and a loss of habitat from this rapidly developing region. For the very first time, this magnificent migration has been captured on full high-definition video. The film documents an epic journey, 2,000 kilometers from its wintering grounds in Taiwan cross coastal China and the Yellow Sea to the bird’s annual breeding ground.
