Featured birding site
Guandu is an important wetland beside the Tamsui River on the outskirts of Taipei, harbouring large numbers of wintering waterfowl and migrating shorebirds. Easily visited by public transport from Taipei, it also offers a good introduction to common birds of Taiwan such as Eastern Spot-billed Duck, Black Drongo, Grey Treepie, Red Collared Dove and Oriental Turtle Dove. Being located at sea level it is not an ideal site to see Taiwan endemic species, although Taiwan Barbet and Taiwan Scimitar-babbler are seen regularly. Around 300 species have been recorded in the Guandu IBA (Important Bird and Biodiversity Area).
