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.
