Some 150 birders will participate in a bird race held in central Taiwan’s Dasyueshan, a
mountainous area known for its bird diversity, the organizer said Wednesday.
The participants, including five from Canada, will compete at the fifth Dasyueshan Bird Race on April 17-18, according to the Chinese Wild Bird Federation.
During the race, the largest and longest-running birding competition in Taiwan, birders will compete in teams to see or hear the greatest number of bird species over a 24-hour time frame at the Dasyueshan National Forest Recreation Area.
Between 10:30am April 17 and 10:30am April 18, the birders could have a chance to be treated with courtship displays of the magnificent Mikado and Swinhoe’s Pheasants at the country’s top birding site, said campaign manager Chiu Po-ying. [FULL STORY]
