Taijiang National Park in Tainan will hold a six-month festival featuring the black-faced
spoonbill that will run from October to March, when the endangered bird species migrates to Taiwan to spend the winter, park authorities said Thursday.
Tainan is one of the most important global wintering sites for the black-faced spoonbill, accounting for more than 65% of the global population. Every year, over 1,000 of the birds are recorded there.
The festival will kick off with an exposition Sept. 26. In addition to an exhibition, there will be games, dramas, DIY activities and quizzes.
The festival will feature a different theme each month and there will be various activities in which people can take part in the park, such as birdwatching and bicycle-riding. Those interested in the activities can register to take part via the park’s official site two weeks prior to the start of the events. [FULL STORY]
