    With the weather growing warmer in Karamay, Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region, local residents can find more birds flying through its skies and resting on its waters.

    Many birds, including great crested grebes, redshanks, mallard ducks, pied avocets, black-winged stilts and ruddy shelducks, choose to call the northwestern city home, often nesting in Karamay’s Gold Dragon Lake, Red Mountain Lake, West Moon Pond and Nine-Kilometer Wetland.
