Introduce

The new land formed by alluvial deposits in the Tsengwen River estuary has a rich estuary ecosystem, which attracts the black-faced spoonbills(黑面琵鷺), an internationally endangered species of bird. Every year at the end of September, black-faced spoonbills migrate from the north, and leave again the following March after spending winter at Xikou. The black-faced spoonbills wandering the shallows of fish pools and lagoons looking for food is a rare sight limited to the fall and winter seasons. The Black-Faced Spoonbill Conservation Center is built using green construction methods, extending out over the lagoon. With grass growing on the roof to prevent reflected light from frightening the birds, the surrounding glass hidden by wooden planks is also an eco-friendly construction design. Walking from the Conservation Center to the shore, along the way bird watching platforms are installed, and there are binoculars so you can see their graceful figures; quietly watching them is very therapeutic for the soul, there are also volunteers to explain the black spoonbill ecosystem to tourists.

    Convenient Weekend Buses for Low-Key Birding

    Traveler rating:4 2019-11

    The Black-faced spoonbills winter here. On the day I went, they were resting behind a mangrove island so I didn’t see them. Apparently if one of the local ospreys flies by, they will be flushed into flight. You can get here by bus on the weekends. Take the 99 loop bus to the end of the line. The birdwatching bus is a little bus that comes by a few minutes later and takes you out to the observation area. There were two rangers with spotting scopes to help observe Caspian terns, redshanks, black-bellied(?) plovers, egrets, herons, dunlin and the usual hard-to-identify shorebirds. There are bathrooms at the observation area but no vending machines or shops. After about an hour and a half, the little bus leaves in the other direction. The trip out to the wetlands goes past oyster farms and other interesting scenery. I spotted some avocets and/or stilts in shallow fields on the way

    Great location to observe wintering endangered Black-faced Spoonbills. 80 were observed the day we visited. Very nice facility with an observation deck, many volunteers willing to assist you with information and spotting scopes to observe these birds. Wonderful facility in support of this bird and additional wildlife.

    時季によりそうです

    Traveler rating:3 2019-04

    天然記念物のクロツラヘラサギが見られるということで行ってみましたが、クロツラヘラサギは渡り鳥ということで、冬にしか見られないそうです。私たちが行った4月には数羽いたようですが、遠くて肉眼ではそれと分かりづらく、どうしても見てみたいという人は、双眼鏡があった方がいいと思います。よほどクロツラヘラサギに興味があれば、この展示館だけ見にきてもいいかもしれませんが、そうでなければ、来る時季を選ばないと無駄足になりそうです。

    交通不便だが、行く価値がある

    Traveler rating:5 2017-10

    台南の郊外にあります。正直に言って観光客にとって交通不便ですね。台南のタクシー代は高くないので、タクシーに乗って行ったほうがお勧めです。鷺は台南の七股によく見かけられますが、クロツラヘラサギが見かけにくくなりました。絶滅危惧種になります。

    賞鳥要碰運氣

    Traveler rating:4 2018-02

    這黑面琵鷺園區,要過來開車最方便,停車位很多,畢竟是在海邊,附近都很荒涼,沿著規劃好的走道行到裡面,就是賞鳥區,可以見到外海的沙洲與潟湖,景色頗為壯觀,但是鳥就只看到一隻,也不是黑面琵鷺,可能是貼近野生動物的關係,空氣中有一股臭味,整體來說,開車可以順道過來看看,但假如沒車,又對鳥沒很大興趣,我覺得大可不來。
