I caught this Munias yesterday morning! It's a rather unusual place for this birds! I have never seen this before.... But they are just having breakfast! Look at the third picture!

Aogu wetland park

Today I went to the Aogu Wetland Forest Park, a 1,470-hectare site in Chiayi County’s Dongshi Township in southwestern Taiwan! Fantastic area for birding! High season is from December to February! I will be back in December!
 I saw a few Black-crowned Night Herons, egrets....Since it's not the the high season I only saw a few birds!
