I've probably only got a week to spend in Taiwan sometime in Oct/Nov/Dec and I was wondering what were the notable places to go birding there and if there was accommodation that birders frequent?

Hi Mike,

It really depends on what area of Taiwan you are visiting. If it's Taipei, then Yehliu Geopark, Wulai, Jinshan, Huajiang, Taipei Botanical Gardens are all worth a visit at that time of year.

Ebird has become extremely popular now in Taiwan and you can get some great up-to-date information about locations and species from there:
