While checking the nesting status at one of the sites, I came across these (unidentified) mushrooms underneath the canopy. The particular site I checked had two eggs. This is the second brood of the pair using this nest hole. However, the female remained the same individual, but the father had changed! This certainly came as a surprise to us since this should be a monogamous species. I wonder where the original male is now...
In addition, we found another new nest tree today inside the botanical garden. When we checked inside, there were already three eggs! What a find!
As some of you may remember, the current (work) position that I work at is all voluntary. However, beginning next week, I will officially start my internship as a "Research Assistant" at the Forest Protection Division, Taiwan Forestry Research Institute, Council of Agriculture, Executive Yuan. But before that, all of the interns partaking in this so-called Taiwan Tech Trek internship program will go on this 5-day orientation trip (or to simply put, touring around Taiwan for 5 days). It will begin tomorrow so I will not be posting during this time. But please sit tight, and I will be sure to share some nice photos and stories next week.
