Taroko Again

Good grounds, small pond, farmland everywhere.
The grounds of TaiwanEcotours new lodge in Taroko were busy with bird life on March 11th. Unfortunately, due to hyperactive hikers, I didn’t have time (maybe will next week) to do a proper accounting.

Other good places to explore near Taroko and Hualien:

The south side of Hualien River Mouth, and nearby road #193 km mark 23 - 30.
Good road leads out to point with good
views over the estuary.

Also Fenglin Forest Trail, and Liyu (Carp) Lake. More later!

New Bird:

Chestnut Munia    Lonchura atricapilla
