Thailand's Migratory Shorebirds


Shorebirds are a diverse and vibrant group of birds that live along shorelines and intertidal areas. They migrate thousands of kilometers between their nesting and wintering grounds on an annual basis. Thailand is home to a few of the most essential shorebird wintering and staging areas in the East Asian-Australasian flyway, hosting a plethora of endemic and migratory shorebirds, including globally threatened species.

This record of the birds' lives reveals the intricacies and magnificence of shorebirds hidden behind their seemingly mundane appearance and explores the multitude of threats that shorebirds face in Thailand.
