Bird lovers order 'takeaways' for black-headed gulls in Kunming
Wang Guitao, a food deliveryman feeds black-headed gulls with “takeaways” ordered online by customers through food delivery apps in Kunming, Southwest China’s Yunnan province, Mar. 11, 2020. Keeping a rendezvous of more than 30 years, over 40,000 migratory black-headed gulls flew thousands of kilometers this winter to Kunming for its balmy weather. However, the novel coronavirus outbreak that has emptied public places made this year's reunion between birds and people very different. Dianchi Lake and other popular bird habitats have been closed to the public since Jan 27 in a bid to contain the epidemic. The bans raised concerns for the birds' welfare as residents usually feed the gulls during the winter months.
After feeding black-headed gulls, Wang takes photos for his customers who ordered the “takeaways” for the migratory birds in Kunming, Southwest China’s Yunnan province, Mar. 11, 2020.
