I have been to Daan Park many times, and I think the waterbirds in the ecological pool area should be the biggest highlight in the park. The flock of waterbirds inhabits the small island in the middle of the pool, and the number is surprising. I was very curious about how these birds came. Were they caught and put in the pool? Or the pool was built, and the waterbirds will inhabit it for a long time.
There are many kinds of waterbirds in the ecological pool area, such as Little Egret, Cattle Egret, Black-crowned Night-Heron, Gray Heron, Malayan Night-Heron and Moorhen, etc. Besides, there are many other categories of birds that inhabit the pool.
The most impressed is the night herons. They are not afraid of people. They often stand on the stones beside the pool and can observe them at close range.
Daan Park is located in downtown Taipei. By MRT, take the Tamshui Xinyi Line to Daan Park Station and exit at Exit 2, 3, 4 or 5 all enter directly into the park.
