Three Strange Birds

 

DSC_6397DSC_6380At a cloudy Saturday here in Taiwan we were too tired to follow our plan and go to Taipei. Instead we ate hot noodles and walked with tiny tiny steps to the local Hsinchu Zoo. Outside the zoo there is a buzzing market street and you may find your future pet bird here, if you are into that. (Picture 1)

The zoo itself were not so special. If you want a real animal experience you should find you way to the Taiwanese capital instead. But at least we find some monkeys and birds to watch, and a peacock had fun watching us. (Picture 2)

DSC_6392Right after leaving the zoo we saw a man with a huge binocular and birdwatching-outfit. Around him a  crowd had gathered and everyone were staring up in the green of a big tree. What was he looking at?

If eagles are sitting in one of the most central parks in Hsinchu, right at 老人大学 (Lǎorén dàxué), well, then you might be able to find them almost anywhere.

If your eyes are sharp enough, of course. 

After this short and not exhausting walk we felt quite tired, and we all went back to our respective rooms for a nap.
