筆者去過大安森林公園多次,覺得生態水池區的水鳥應該是公園裡最大的亮點。成群的水鳥棲息於水池中間的小島,數量之多讓人驚艷。很好奇當初這些鳥是怎麼來的,是公園處請人抓來的? 還是水池建好,時間一久水鳥就會棲息於此。

生態水池區水鳥種類很多,常見的有白鷺、黃頭鷺、夜鷺、蒼鷺、綠蓑鷺、黑冠麻鷺、紅冠水雞…等等。此外, 還有許多其他類別的鳥類棲息於水池周圍。

印象最深的是夜鷺,他們比較不怕人,常常站在水池旁的石頭上,可以近距離觀察。

大安森林公園位於台北市中心。搭乘捷運,可搭乘淡水信義線至大安森林公園站,並經由2、3、4或5號出口出站,出口即是公園。

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.
