Puli and Lienhuachih

Near Puli and Lienhuachr.

North of Puli.

Driving back down towards Puli Town I impulsively decided to check out some of the small wet fields and plantations below the road around km mark 63. Turned out to be a lot of fun.

We saw 20+ Scaly-breasted Munia, 7 Grey Wagtails, 10+ Pacific Swallows, 20 Little Egrets, 5+ Cattle Egrets, 1 Plain Prinia, White-vented Myna, Dark Drongo, Little-ringed Plover, Yellow Wagtail.

After Puli we had a short late afternoon diversion to Lienhuachih with hopes of finding Plain Flowerpeckers, instead lots of Japanese White-eyes, 3 Plumbeous Redstarts, 1 White-bellied Green Pigeon, 3 Dusky Fulvetta, 1 Eyebrowed Thrush, 5+ Black Bulbul 10+ Tree Sparrow, Prinia species, Swallow/Martin species (ignored), Black Drongo.

New Bird:

Eyebrowed Thrush    Turdus obscurus
