Taiwan Day 5

From the mountains we passed down south and west to Tainan city and a grand hotel (Shrangri-la) overlooking the university. It was not a huge drive from here to the Ougi Wetlands to wath their famed wintering flock of Black-faced Spoonbills, as well as a nice collection of Asian waders. There were 75 spoonbills in the distant flock. Long-toed Stint and Yellow Bittern were both new birds for me.
