 en Update on the distribution range of the white-browed crake ( Porzana cinerea check for this species in other resources ): a new record from mainland China
YU, Li-Jiang; JIANG, Ai-Wu & ZHOU, Fang

Abstract

Since 1980, the white-browed crake ( Porzana cinerea check for this species in other resources ) has been experiencing an expansion from south of the Isthmus of Kra, northward to China. Recently, this species was observed in several locations throughout Southwest China, including Ningming and Baise, Guangxi (2012, 2013), and Xichang, Sichuan (2013). These sightings are the first distribution record of this species in mainland China, suggesting that the white-browed crake is following a natural species dispersal northward into mainland China from Southeast Asia.
