Taiwan 21st March 2018

Another mixed day weather-wise spent again around in the Anmashan - Daxueshan National Forest Recreation Area. This was our last day here. We had managed to clock up twenty of the twenty seven Taiwan endemics form this general area in three days. New endemics for today included Black-necklaced Laughingthrush, Rufous-crowned Laughingthrush, Taiwan Barbet and Taiwan Bush Warbler. The last species took a good deal of work to lay our eyes on. We had a few singing over the last two days including this same individual the previous day at close quarters. They are real skulkers, not too surprising considering they are a member of the Locustella warbler genus. The other non-endemic lifers for me were Streaked Prinia, Brownish-flank Bush Warbler, Plumbeous Redstart, White-bellied Pigeon and Oriental Cuckoo.

  1. These are truly some amazing photos. The photo of the Black Eagle is amazing in mid flight. The different colors of each bird is breath-taking. You take some beautiful pictures. Thanks for the share. Have a great day. Looking forward to more.
