'Rarest duck on earth' spotted in NE China's Changbai Mountain

CGTN Nature film crew captured on camera flocks of Chinese merganser in Changbai Mountain, northeast China's Jilin Province. Chinese merganser is an endangered species under first-class state protection in China, with fewer than 5,000 in the wild globally.

As the breeding season approaches, Changbai Mountain is becoming more and more lively.

Several pairs of Chinese mergansers were spotted frolicking in the Heihe section of the Toudao Songhua River, which flows from Changbai Mountain.
