Due to the cold air, the temperature of Kunming drops sharply, but the sun is still shinning brightly. Flocks of overwintering black-headed gulls flying near Daguan river attract the crowd to come and feed them. Huanxi bridge is one of the best places to watch the gulls, because there are rows of golden celtis tetrandra along the river, forming a fascinating sight in winter.
