Only a few more months left before the Asian Bird Fair in Chiayi, Taiwan in November!
Chiayi County is located in Taiwan’s South West Coast and is the best place to see the Pied Avocet in Taiwan. The Pied Avocet is featured in the logo of the upcoming 9th Asian Bird Fair this November. Chiayi boasts of many ecosytems, one of which is a healthy coastal environment thriving with rich biodiversity and is a habitat for a variety of wildlife.
Among these ecosystems are the Aoqu Wetland,
which is the largest wetland in Taiwan.
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.
