The black-faced spoonbill (Platalea minor), named for its bare and black facial skin, is a protected species in China as part of the China Red Data Book. A quarter of the world's population of black-faced spoonbill can be seen during migration in Mai Po marshes, Hong Kong. Found in eastern Asia, it has a distinctively shaped beak-looking like a spoon, or a “pi pa” (Chinese musical instrument). The Black-faced Spoonbill feeds on fish and shrimps in shallow water, mainly in coastal areas.
