Flocks of swans dance on the Kaidu River in Bohu County, NW China’s Xinjiang

On November 21, 2022, more than 10 swans fly to the Kaidu River in Bohu County, Bayingolin Mongolian Autonomous Prefecture, northwest China’s Xinjiang. They frolic freely and forage cozily, or rush into the sky, presenting a beautiful and harmonious ecological picture.

With the arrival of the migration season, flocks of swans fly in a herringbone line and stay on the clear water of the Kaidu River, attracting many residents to come and watch.

Erdeng Blik, a member of the Party Group of the Forestry and Grassland Bureau of Bohu County, said that the recent wind direction and wind force are very suitable for the migration of swans. These swans will stay in Bohu County until early December, and then continue to move south. During this period, the forestry department will continuously strengthen the inspection of the habitat of migratory animals to ensure their safe transit.

It is understood that swans are national second-class protected animals and have high requirements for ecological environments such as air and water quality. They usually choose places with excellent water quality and ecological environment to rest on the way of migration.

In recent years, Bohu County has strengthened the protection of ecological wetlands, scientifically planned ecological protection measures according to local conditions, and provided a good ecological environment for swans to live, while attracting more and more migratory birds to migrate and stay.
