Bird of the Week #6 - Taiwan Nutcracker


Another from our year-long back-packing and birding honeymoon some seven plus years ago... almost 3,000 metres up in the misty highlands of Taiwan, specifically Dasyueshan National Forest, and an intimate encounter with several beautiful and entertaining Taiwan Nutcrackers (Nucifraga caryocatactes owstoni, the endemic subspecies of Eurasian / Spotted Nutcracker).
