The sumptuous male cardinal in the ravine Thursday in @CentralParkNYC was strictly grab-n-go, but he was a repeat customer. First he perused the menu. 1/10 #BirdTwitter #birdphotography #wildlifephotography #BirdsSeenIn2022 #birdcpp #birdcpnyc #biodivercity
Then he had a quick bite 2/10
Next he psyched me out 3/10

Endemic subspecies have restricted ranges and many have a high chance of being declared a new species in the future. Taiwan is home to 54 endemic subspecies of bird. We will be sharing these with you over the coming days and weeks.

Black-naped Monarch (黑枕藍鶲)

The Ring-necked Pheasant (環頸雉) is considered Least Concern by the IUCN yet Taiwan's endemic ssp is Critically Endangered mainly due to hybridization. They are primarily found in Taichung City, the Chianan Plain and along the east coast.

Taiwan's endemic ssp. of Slaty-legged Crake (灰腳秧雞) is extremely shy and difficult to see. It's easier to hear them call at night in spring and summer. An indigenous Tsou tribe legend says if you hear one at night, you'll see a Hundred-Pacer (百步蛇) in ten days!

When I saw these guys on my Birding walk, ar first glance I thought it was the usual Grey Treepie because of the size and tail( It is dark and wet in the mornings here,in that Palm Grove in particular), then I heard the calls!
