SPECIES INFO

The Chinese Egret or Swinhoe's Egret, Egretta eulophotes, is a full-crested, white egret with yellow bill. It breeds in Russia, North Korea, South Korea and mainland China, and then migrates south through Japan, the Philippines, Malaysia, Singapore and Indonesia. The main wintering grounds appear to be in the Eastern Visayas (Leyte, Bohol and Cebu).

It is classified as Vulnerable, the biggest threat being habitat loss. The current population is estimated at between 2,600 and 3,400 birds.
