Bramblings at Tataka National Park, Taiwan.

Here are some of the Brambling pictures which I took at Tataka National Park, Taiwan, in 2009. Tataka National Park is located next to Alishan, a popular tourist destination in Taiwan.

Alishan is well known for the sunrise/sunset (日出/日落), clouds (雲海), forest and sacred tree (神木), and the unique hilly railway (阿里山火車). These are the must see natural scenes and must experience railway ride in Alishan, but I missed the railway, because at that time the railway was closed for repairing.

Currently, I'm living in Taiwan and will be here for many years, therefore, I won't be able to update my blog as usual, mainly due to the tight schedule of my laboratory work. Nevertheless, this blog will be only updated when I'm free from my lab work or when there is a rare bird sighted
