Taiwan Update - 20th April

With very poor internet/wifi connection lately, i'm not sure when I can post again. But today I finally scored with a Malayan Night-heron at Huisun, a bird i've wanted to see for many years.

At Basianshan this morning there were Varied Tits, another new endemic for the tour, as well as Dusky Fulvetta and Red Oriole. Huisun also gave us the spectacular Taiwan Blue Magpie as well and as it was only early afternoon when we saw the night-heron we decided to drive straight to Wushe. and what a good move that turned out to be. After many unsuccessful attempts we finally caught up with Taiwan Bamboo-partridge, as well as Taiwan (Vivid) Niltava, Rusty Laughingthrush and had more views of Black-streaked Scimitar-babbler. 

Even Black Bulbuls look different in Taiwan

And we have had many views of the delightful Rufous-faced Warbler at all of the sites visited so far:
