Continuing with my quest to do a little more touring in my local area, I decided to drag the kiddies along to the black-faced spoonbill reserve, quite nearby our home.
The decision to go here was not completely random. Christina has been doing some stuff about the black-faced spoonbills at school and had brought a book home about them.
The black-faced spoonbills migrate to Taiwan, specifically the Qigu area in Tainan, for a lot of the winter as the climate in Taiwan is not as cold as the other place they stay. They are an endangered species with less than a thousand or so in the world.
When we were almost at the main visitor center we stumbled on this sign. Looks like there are a few other things to add to our tour list there. We headed on to the conservation center to see what we could see.
Aside from just being there, I don’t have too much to report about the center itself. It was fairly interesting with quite a lot of people making their way through the center.
A fair number of tour bus passers through.
I headed home as it was getting late in the day, and dragging the kids on the crappy bike for 40km in total was a bit of a test. Next time I’ll head to the actually conservation area and see what we can see there.
Till next time!
