A large flock of critically endangered birds arrive in Cambodia in yearly migration

A large flock of critically endangered migratory birds, the yellow-breasted bunting, have arrived at the Boeung Prek Lapouv Protected Landscape in southern Cambodia’s Takeo province during their yearly migration, a conservationist organization said on Wednesday.

The yellow-breasted bunting was considered a critically endangered species by the International Union for Conservation of Nature in 2004 due to a rapid drop in population size.

The species breeds in Europe and northern Asia, and then migrates yearly to parts of Asia, including India, southern China, Cambodia, Vietnam, Laos, Thailand and Myanmar, for winter quarter and food from December to April, said BirdLife Cambodia in a news release.
