Another walk around of the garden for new birdwatchers (or experienced birders new to Taiwan) on Saturday January 23rd. Only beginners welcome! It will be at a relaxed pace, looking at and listening to anything natural but with a focus on birds. The garden is fairly small and civilized, but is home to 20 to 30 of the common bird species – hopefully next time you should be able to recognize them by yourself.
You will meet at the main entrance of the gardens on Heping West Road at 8.30 am. No charge. All you need to bring is rain gear (just in case), camera if wished, and binoculars if you have any.
Also quite possible: Rufous-capped Babbler, Collared Scops-owl, Tree Sparrow, Black Drongo, Common Moorhen, Spotted Dove, Pacific Swallow, Taiwan Blue Magpie, Eurasian Magpie, White-rumped Shama, Scaly Munia, Oriental Magpie Robin, White-breasted Waterhen, Black Bulbul, Taiwan Hwamei, Little Grebe, Spot-billed Duck, maybe thrushes, mynas, wagtails, shrikes, raptors, warblers. Don’t be afraid to go explore by yourself.
When: 23 Jan 2016 Sat 8:30
