Migratory birds have settled in some areas of Taninthayi Region for winter, and their migration is the very first time to this area, said the locals.
The fleets of these birds were found in some villages of Taninthayi Township and Mawtaung Town.
Officials from Forest Department said they will erect educative posters not to catch or kill these beneficial birds which eat harmful snails in the paddy fields. Migratory birds flew from Siberian Plain of Russia, and they normally settled in upper and central areas of Myanmar for winter. —Nan Thar Yi Htein Win (IPRD) (Translated by Aung Khin)
