Spring in Hexigten Series | Episode 3: Life's adventure
As Dalinur Lake thaws, migratory birds arrive to embrace spring. Flocks of relict and common black-headed gulls line up by the lake, waiting for the long-expected feast.
Originating in the Greater Hinggan Mountains, the Gonggeer River swells each spring with melting snows. The meltwater flows along the riverbed toward the Dalinur Lake as a crucial source of freshwater. Leuciscus waleckii is commonly known as the Amur ide. As the snow starts to melt, they embark on their migration upstream to spawn and breed.
