|Come on Black-necklaced Scimitar-babbler...|
Just been co-guiding (well sorting the logistics more like) for a 10-day group tour of Taiwan. Very successful - all endemics, most potential splits, and many, many other excellent birds seen.
As has been the case for the last few months, the only place to reliably offer up the Taiwan Partridge was the feeding station at Fireflies Homestay in mid-level Alishan. Also a good place for Swinhoe's Pheasant, Collared/Mountain Scops Owl and various mammals. Call the numbers on the website (in Chinese - I can help book).
