Weekend Twitch

Get another a stack of new birds in a long weekend (or a couple weekdays).

This package is suitable for keen birders interested in getting most of the Taiwan endemics and other key birds in a very short time. Suggested itinerary: spend 2-3 days birding in Taiwan. Visit one coastal site, one low-elevation forest, and one mid-high elevation forest site.

Expect to see 90% of the species below - and many others. The focus will be on the endemics especially the pheasants. If a private tour, ask about the possibilities of other needed birds.
