Spoon-billed Sandpiper

(23 photos)

The Spoon-billed Sandpiper is one of the world's most critically endangered bird species. Extreme habitat loss along its migratory route through the Yellow Sea and coastal bird trapping by subsistence and market hunters during migration and on its wintering grounds have caused its precipitous decline.
