General

Information is from dictionaries and other sources. Pinyin reflects Mandarin pronunciation; for some dialect names, it is no more than a polite fiction. Korean glosses are tentative. Comments and corrections welcome.

The ibises are known in Chinese as huán, also read xuán. Due to their resemblance to the herons, several of the ibises have names related to those birds. The Japanese Crested Ibis is also called the 朱鹭 zhū-lù 'vermilion heron' and the spoonbills are known as 琵鹭 pí-lù 'spatula-heron'.

The highly endangered Japanese Crested Ibis Nipponia nippon is a symbol and rallying cry for the environmental movement in Japan and for Sino-Japanese cooperation.
