Birding in Hong Kong at Tai Po Kau

Tau Po Kau Nature Reserve, New Territories, Hong Kong

Tai Po Kau Nature Reserve is a readily-accessible area of our biggest area of woodland, which runs from near the coast at Tai Po up to the slopes of Tai Mo Shan, Hong Kong’s highest mountain.  Most of the woodland is maturing sixty-year-old secondary growth of native south China trees.  Woodland birds include Black Bulbuls, Fork-tailed Sunbird, Velvet-fronted Nuthatch and a variety of babblers.  It is a good site to see Crested Goshawk.

Birding Tai Po Kau is easiest in winter, when the foliage is less thick, and the resident birds have been joined by thrushes and other seasonal visitors. In spring, many migrating flycatchers pass through.

Woodland birding requires patience, and many species are more easily heard than seen. However, diligent birders may be rewarded with views of some harder-to-find species.
