In October, around 2300 oriental white storks made their way back to the wetlands 
 
of Momoge National Nature Reserve in Northeast China's Jilin province.
Let's take a look.
 
 
China has placed the oriental white stork under state first-class protection as 
 
there are only less than 4,000 such birds remaining.
The birds used to have choice of three different migration routes, however there 
 
is now only one left. The birds make a necessary pit stop at Momoge Wetland while 
 
traveling from Poyang Lake in eastern China to Siberia.
 
The environment of Momoge Wetland has been greatly improved in recent years, 
 
creating a good habitat for more rare birds.
