A rare bird species, the blue-tailed bee-eater, has settled in Jinjiang, southeast China's Fujian Province, making the city the world's northernmost breeding place for the species on record.

The blue-tailed bee-eater is a colorful tropical bird that usually inhabits Southeast Asia. Being highly migratory, it can be observed seasonally in the southern and eastern coastal areas in China.
