These birds are spotted in the Hong Kong Wetland Park. They are migratory birds but visits Hong Kong often. They hang around peacefully with Cormorants, Herons and Egrets. I was told that the species don't compete for food due to different beak shapes. They were targeting different fishes at different water depth.
They love wetland marshes. In Hong Kong, they are often found in Mai Po Nature Reserve and the neighboring Hong Kong Wetland Park.
This is an endangered species. World population is estimated to be less than 3000.
