A Guide To Beijing’s Common Birds

One of the most common responses when people find out I am a birder is “but there aren’t any birds in Beijing!” This is an understandable reaction. If you are not particularly looking for birds, and don’t venture outside the comfort of the 5th ring road, you are likely to see a limited number of species.  However, even inside the 2nd Ring Road, birds can be found.

Birding Beijing has produced a downloadable PDF guide to some of the species that can be found in central Beijing’s parks and green spaces.

  1. Thank you for posting this guide. My wife and I just finished a trip to China and Tibet. I am a birder here in Southern California, but didn’t have any good referenced books for China birds. We were able to see and photograph the Eurasian Tree Sparrow, the White Wagtail, the Azure-winged Magpie and the Eurasian Magpie.
