Watch ardeidaes in Anyi
( chinadaily.com.cn )
With the improvement in the ecological environment in Zhuluo Village of Anyi county and the enhancement of villagers' awareness of bird protection, the thick forest of Zhuluo Village has become the ardeidaes' "paradise" to live, find food and reproduce.
Around April 20 each year, over 100,000 ardeidaes fly a long journey to settle down in the village, creating unique scene.
As the second national forest park in Nanchang, Shengshuitang Forest Park of Anyi county contains the Shengshuitang scenic spot and Zhuluo Kingdom of Ardeidaes. The park is known as "Minor Mount Lushan" for its overlapped mountains, verdant forest, 96 percent forest coverage, and pleasant climate. The park covers a total area of 1500 hectares with the highest altitude reaching 410 meters. Various kinds of animals and plants can be found in the park and it was named the "Provincial forest park" in 1999 by Jiangxi Forestry Bureau.
The main sites in Shengshuitang Forest Park include the Shengshuitang natural camphora wood forest and the Zhuluo Kingdom of Ardeidaes. The 10 hectares of natural camphora wood forest maintains its original form, with most trees being over 60 years old. As an excellent habitat for summer birds and ardeidaes, the Zhuluo Kingdom of Ardeidaes is one of the major ardeidae habitats in Jiangxi province. Over 100,000 migrant ardeidaes inhabit the forest.
