In June last year over 30 black-faced spoonbills were observed in the Mundok migratory bird reserve(wetland) in South Phyongan Province.

Spoonbills of the family Threskiornithidae are one of endangered bird species, and they number some 3 000 across the world.

In the past about ten spoonbills had been observed in the Mundok migratory bird reserve.

The reserve occupies over 3 700 hectares of the flat and coastal areas on the lower Chongchon River, including tideland, paddy fields, rivers, streams and hilly coastal areas.

Registered as an East Asian-Australasian flyway network site, the reserve has favourable natural and geographical conditions and rich biodiversity for the habitat and stopover of many bird species.

The reserve is so far known as a habitat of over 240 bird species with 190 odd species of migratory birds included.
