Shenzhen is an important stopover of the winter birds' East Asia-Australia migratory route. From October to April, a peak season for migrant birds in Shenzhen, is a good time for birdwatching since there are also more than 200 species of resident birds that can be admired in the city, according to official data. 

The Shenzhen Bay area has four out of the 10 best birdwatching sites in Pearl River Delta cities, namely Shenzhen Bay Park, OCT Wetland Park, Guangdong Neilingding Futian National Nature Reserve and Futian Mangrove Ecological Park. The other six sites are: Wutong Mountain, the Yuanshan scenic spot, Honghu Park, Bijia Hill Park, Zhongshan Park and Dapeng Agricultural Center.
