When I arrived at the place, I was not quite sure about the guide book's description. The peninsula is also the premium tourist attraction of Northern Taiwan. There were 10s of tour buses in the parking lot and hundreds if not thousands of tourists. The guide books said, watched for the bird activities in the wooded park near the entrance. Sure, except the noise from the a tourist operator's speaker, I heard no bird sound. Not to be discouraged, I continued my hike with the tourists. Occasionally some encouraging signs appeared. A few serious looking photographers dressing in camouflage outfit carrying huge tripod and camera lens the size of an elephant walking passed me.
(黃眉姬鶲), Ficedula narcissina. It is a rare bird in Taiwan. Its normal summer habitat is northeastern China and Japan. I wish it luck on its way back home.
In case you are wondering what the mass of tourists came to see at Yehliu? Certainly not the tiny colorful migratory bird! They came to see this amazing rock formation at the ocean front of the peninsula, a real nature wonder!
