With financial supports of HKTraveler.com, the HKBWS Ringed Black-faced Spoonbill Record System is now opened and members are encouraged to submit your sightings of the ringed Black-faced Spoonbills to this online database. The aim of this online database is to gather, store and display information of movements of some ringed Black-faced Spoonbills. With the aids of internet maps, we can actually track these movements not only in local places (e.g. Deep Bay area), but also in the entire distribution range of this species (i.e. East Asia).
When you have observed a ringed Black-faced Spoonbill, information of this re-sighting including date, place, time, ring colours and codes shall be recorded and subsequently entered into the database. Your report can help us to understand more of the life history of the spoonbills. Local movements, home range, migrations and even longevity could be shown in the database after gathering many of these sightings.
In fact, this is just a beginning of this online database. It is almost certain that more update and modification will be needed to do after getting some more information and comments from all of you in various places. Your support is essential for the use of this online database. I just hope that people who are concern and interest to the Black-faced Spoonbill will find this database is useful, interesting and will become a good source of information about the Black-faced Spoonbill which is also beneficial to the conservation of the Black-faced Spoonbill.
