Journal of Changbai Mountain Species: The Chinese merganser
Listed as endangered on the IUCN Red List, the Chinese merganser is gradually returning from the brink of extinction. And Changbai Mountain has become a harbor for the tree-dwelling migratory duck.
The Chinese merganser is under first-class state protection in China. The adult male duck has a black head and neck while the female has a brownish-yellow color. The birds arrive at Changbai Mountain to mate and breed in spring, and then migrate south for wintering.
