Taiwan - Day 2 - 3/12/14

Wulai
The accomation we stayed in tonight was situated right by the river, which resulted in a mad rush at 5am when a Taiwan Whistling Thrush and a Plumbeous Redstart was found just of our balconies under the hotel lights. All of the morning and some of the afternoon was spent birding the Wulai area, before heading west to some hides for better views of the Taiwan Bamboo Partridge. A lot of new and endemic birds today.

 the ultra elusive Dusky Fulvetta. I was in fact pleased to get this shot, despite how poor it is.

 after brief views in the morning, it was great to have these views in the afternoon. Interestingly, in the morning this species was Chinese Bamboo Partridge, but had been split into Taiwan Bamboo Partridge around midday.
