Had dinner at the teahouse - which was interesting but it was freezing. Nowhere had any heat and everyone seemed to enjoy eating with the doors wide open.
Day 2: After a cold breakfast, we drove up to Alishan National Park. Headed straight for the top and the birding was fabulous. Life birds for us were Vineaous Rosefinch, Johnstone's Robin, Flamecrest, White-whiskered Laughing-thrush, Golden Parrotbill, Taiwan Barwing and Steere's Liocichla. Now we didn't feel the cold!
After enjoying that for sometime we made our way to Yuishan Naitional Park for lunch - no life birds for us here but so many species in Taiwan are endemic sub-species that we make a note of everything. Black-throated Tit, Coal tit, Spotted Nutcracker, Gray-cheeked Fulvetta etc.
