Luobei Reed Field Habitat for Wild Aquatic Birds  

Luobei Reed Field Habitat for Wild Aquatic Birds is located in the vast patches of moisture land of Three River Plain of Luobei reed field, Laodengshan and Laodengpao areas. They are also terrains free of reverse irrigation during the raining period of the Two Rivers and Songhua River and unsuitable for exploitation as well. The vast patches of moisture land in Three River Plain have rich oil texture and broad water area with a total area of 130,000 square kms. Marshes, lakes and grass lands are pervasive. Resources like grass fields, reeds and the sweet sedges are luxuriant. Original plant covers are well kept and the place is very suitable for migratory birds to live and breathe. For hundreds of years, it has become a perching and living place of dozens of aquatic birds like Red-crowned Crane, Red Surface crane, White Crane, , Numidian Crane, White Crane, Black Stork, Red Heron, Heron, Egret, Pipa Heron, Goose, Black Swan, Mandarin Duck, Swan Goose, Bean Goose, Cranes, Red Hemp Duck, Green Neck Duck, River Seagulls ,and Songbirds such as Yellow Buttock and Forehead , Blue Buttock and Forehead and Larks ,and ferocious birds like Eagle String, White Tail, Eagles, etc. Laodeng Hill has an altitude of 76.1m, being the natural coordinate of migratory birds’ movement. Laodengpao has a water area of 36000 square kms and is the largest marsh within the area, and it is also the water area with most aquatic birds distributed. Due to its geographical location, a large number of migratory birds depart in autumn and return in spring to live and breathe. Due to the exploitation of the Three Rivers Plain in recent years for irrigating the fields, draining of floods, field exploitation and tree planting, the surrounding environment has greatly changed, which forced certain kinds of birds to go northward. It is reviewed that some kinds of birds came back here in flocks to seek for living and breathing because of maladjustment of northern environmental conditions.
