Taiwan Trip Report

I've put together my Taiwan Trip Report (below).

This was a really successful, short birding trip to Taiwan and Lanyu Island in May 2014 (14th-24th). The main target was Fairy Pitta. Once seen the focus was on seeing as many of the endemic species and endemic sub-species possible in the time allowed.

We saw all of the endemics, and pretty much all of the endemic sub-species that may one day get raised to full species status. In addition there was a high number of other endemic races seen. Birding highlights included Fairy Pitta, Swinhoe's Pheasant, Mikado Pheasant, Lanyu Scops Owl, Japanese Paradise Flycatcher and many more!

I've put a few photos in the report and there are some also in the post below.

If you have any questions/comments please feel free to drop me an email.
