Taiwan - Day 11 - 12/12/14

Alishan Area, Jhanshu Township and Jiji Ecology Park
A knock on the door at 4am was not the best way to wake up, but this was only because a Brown Hawk Owl was sat on the wires outside our rooms. When it did get light, we hopped on the back of Mr Liu's truck and headed up the mountain flushing three Malayan Night Herons. Despite our 'best' efforts, we still couldn't find a Rusty Laughingthrush. We soon headed north to the above locations with the highlights below. We stayed in Wushe for the night ready for our last day of birding tomorrow.
