TOKYO-Bay Shorebirds Survey SPRING 2017

Long ago, when Tokyo Bay was surrounded by the natural coast, wide tidal flats spread over the coast front. There were many water birds resting wings and catching bait. Even now, a few migratory birds, shikigi and chidori, which frequently use tidal flats are coming to the tidal flats of Tokyo Bay that are left behind. Many shorebirds breed in northern areas such as Siberia in the spring and move to Southeast Asia etc. in the winter.
For WMBD Tokyo-Bay Shorebirds Survey will count migratory shorebirds in Tokyo Bay.
