This blog is for family and friends, to share my feelings and photos with and for myself, to support my fading memory and improve my Japanese. I intend to do some writing in kanji, but am not getting very far without a Japanese computer. So for the moment I say "konnichi wa". Aisatsu dake - just saying hello.

Mt. Dasyueshan, more birds on the 1st day

The rest of the afternoon we stayed at another pheasant location, hoping to see the Mikado Pheasant.
Wayne and I sat quietly on the cold rocks (the thermometer had sagged a couple of inches) till there was no more light. A small glimpse of a female Mikado from 100m down was all we got, but there were other birds.

White-eared Sibia, endemic

Taiwan Yuhina, endemic

Taiwan striped squirrel

Vinaceous Rosefinch

Spotted or Eurasian Nutcracker

Steere's Liocichlia, another Taiwan endemic. I couldn't get a better picture than this.
I'll have to get back here and try harder.
