In Mainland China, the oyster catchers are known as 蛎鹬 lì-yù, or 'oyster snipe' (see Scolopacidae). In Taiwan they are called 蛎鸻 lì-héng, or 'oyster plovers'.

The ibisbills are known as 鹮嘴鹬 huán-zuǐ yù, quite literally 'ibis-billed snipe'.

This is the Inner Mongolian name for the avocets and stilts (Recurvirostridae). It is not listed in ordinary dictionaries, so the pronunciation is just a guess. The name suggests a connection with the verb хутгалах khutgalakh 'to stab'.
