A representative of the Management Board of Dao Co Tourist Attraction in Chi Lang Nam commune (Thanh Mien) said the number of Asian openbill storks coming to live there had surged.

About 200 Asian openbill storks are living there, an increase of about 170 storks compared to February.

According to some experienced people, the number of Asian openbill storks rose because there were more and more fields left fallow in the surrounding areas, creating conditions for storks and night herons to search for food.

Besides, the expansion of area and planting of more trees on islets lured more storks and night herons.

Asian openbill stork is a rare and precious species in the Vietnam Red Book.

Currently, about 20,000 storks and night herons are living in Dao Co.
