Taiwan Birding

My first experience of birding in Taiwan was rewarded unbelievably with many beautiful moments. The excitement of birds in flights and birds among the Cherry Blossom are beyond words. But there is something beyond birding that I observed while in Taiwan. Taiwan is exceptionally clean and green and you do not find rubbish in the streets and the people of Taiwan upkeep their cities and environment in tip-top condition. The people themselves uphold cleanliness and not the cleaners. This triggers my thoughts over the deteriorating state of cleanliness in Singapore which we should watch. It is time to start with myself and my immediate surrounding. This birding trip started off at Taipei and then we headed to Snow Mountain 雪山, Taichung coastal area Longjing 龍井區 , Jade Mountain 玉山, Alishan 阿里山國家風景區 and finally at ChiaYi 嘉義. Hope you enjoy the beautiful birds as much as I have photographed them. Thanks to my Bird Guide for this wonderful moment during the entire trip 戴揚!!!
