More Eurasian House Sparrows again. This one standing on a metal pipe.
One of the most exciting findings yesterday was this Swinhoe's Japalura, a common reptile all over Taiwan and found nowhere else in the world except Taiwan.
It was exciting because I saw it catching a beetle and eating it right in front of me. Then I spend a good 30 minutes or so (under the blazing afternoon sun) just simply observing it resting underneath the shades of a tree.
In the afternoon, I biked along a ditch (don't ask me why I like to bike along dykes or ditches) and saw this Black Drongo (Dicrurus macrocercus) perched right on top of me. Sorry for the poor photo, but this was the only photo I got. It is distinguishable by its metallic blackness and the deeply-forked tail, and likes to perch on wires, trees, bamboo shots, and even cattle backs.
