Thousands of birds return to their nests, and the sky is full of clouds.

In the mid-winter season, tens of thousands of wild cormorants gather on Xieshan Island in Hukou County, Jiangxi Province. The scene is breathtaking.

Xieshan, also known as Xieshan Island, is 97 meters above sea level and 1,000 meters in circumference. It is 9 kilometers away from Hukou County.

Legend has it that the fairy fell into the lake with embroidered shoes, hence the name Shoe Mountain.

Xieshan Island is home to many birds and is known as the "Bird Island".

From the beginning of winter to the following spring, rare birds and migratory birds come here to roost in succession, and the spectacular scene of "ten thousand birds return to their nests" is staged almost every day on time.

After the ban on fishing in the Yangtze River and Poyang Lake, bird food became more abundant. Most of the migratory birds chose to live in the relatively warm and inaccessible southeast, creating a peculiar landscape of half "snow mountains" and half woods.
