It also houses the salt fields of Budai Township as well as a variety of ponds, mudflats, lagoons, and forests. These serve as habitat and foraging grounds for resident and migratory birds. Egrets, plovers, sandpipers, ducks, geese, and gulls flock to these sites during migratory season and the coastline of Chiayi is also a great place for raptor watching.
