There are over 1,400 bird species that have been recorded in China and yet over 800 of these species can be seen in just one Province, Yunnan, despite the fact that Yunnan represents only 4% of the landmass of China. Yunnan is also a stunningly beautiful Province with varied habitats including mountains, lakes, plateaus, plains and tropical rainforests. Yunnan borders four other Chinese Provinces, namely Tibet, Sichuan, Guangxi and Guizhou and also has international borders with Vietnam, Myanmar and Laos. The bird photographs contained in this gallery come from various trips to Yunnan including the Gaoligong Mountains, the rainforests of Xishuangbanna, and the hills surrounding Dali and Chuxiong. The diversity of birds in Yunnan is truly outstanding including Laughingthrushes, Pittas, Barbets, Sunbirds, Wren-babblers, Fulvettas and Pheasants to name just a few.
