Introduce

The Jacana Ecological Education Park (水雉生態教育園區) is the finest bird-watching location within the Guantian(官田) area, and is the fruition of ten years of collaboration between bird lovers who have enjoyed watching the ecology of Jacanas. What started with two shipping containers and a strip of uncultivated land has slowly been transformed into an environment that is suited to the Jacana. With water chestnuts and rice paddies planted in the surroundings, the birds have a rich source of food, and the low dykes of this space have become brimming with life. Make use of binoculars from the bird watching pavilion on site, which is fitted with special bird watching window frames, of a square shape and around the same size as a picture frame hanging from the wall. The view of the scenery around is unique when viewed from each window, and due to the fact that birds are susceptible to the presence of other animals, it is necessary to speak quietly and enjoy the birds through binoculars. During the reproductive season, the ecological park’s body of water sees Jacanas fluttering about the surface making wonderful bird calls and performing a bird dance, and after smaller chicks are born, it is possible to see mother and father busily feeding them. This is a paradise of Jacanas, and a hidden secret environment which bird watchers love.
