Taipei, April 13 (CNA) Taipei City’s Public Work Department has built 40 cuckoo clock-shaped birdhouses in Daan Forest Park with the aim of adding a touch of nature to the rapidly urbanized city, a city official said Monday.
With spring upon the city, people can see the cuckoo clock birdhouses when they pass under the maple trees along Xinsheng South Road (新生南路) and Jianguo South Road (建國南路), which frame two sides of the park, according to the official.
The boxes are made from Japanese cedar and park authorities are hopeful that they will be used by the black-browed barbets and other bird species that live in the park. [FULL STORY]
