If you ever get the notion to visit Taipei, one of the attractions is the Tamsui River which clears out through Tamsui. Walking along the river bank with a spotting scope will show you just how, amidst all the concrete, there is actually quite an abundance of bird life here.
We’ve spotted all sorts of birds among the bushes, in the mangrove swamp, and when the tide goes out! Towards Beitou, you will find a larger bird protection area where there are many varieties of birds living in relative security. Anyway, worth visiting.
