By TTNews Reporter Liu, Li-Wen
CHANGHUA, TAIWAN (TTNews) – The Grey-faced Buzzard is a migratory Asian bird of prey. Taiwan happens to lie on a major migration route for the Grey-faced Buzzard and large numbers may be seen moving southward in October in Hengchun and Kenting areas and northward in late March along the Bagua Mountain Range. During this time of the year, approximately 20,000 Grey-faced Buzzards will fly across the Bagua Mountain Range in March every year, offering the bird-watching lovers the opportunity to appreciate their beauty.
Aside from the Grey-faced Buzzards, the traces of Crested Serpent Eagle, Crested Goshawk, Sparrowhawk and other non-migratory raptors can be discovered during this time of the year. As in the springtime and autumn, it is also quite easy to observe the Oriental Honey Buzzard, Eurasian Buzzard, Osprey, Peregrine and other migratory birds of prey. If you are a huge bird-watching lover, now it is the most perfect time to make a trip to Changhua!
