Chickens, Ducks and birds

During our recent holidays in Taiwan we came across some of the local animals in the places we visited.  There were some ducks and swans at the place where we did tie dye.

They were happily swimming around in the pond  during dinner time.  I love this green head duck. It looks like the traditional wooden duck that we normally see in the shops.

There were chicken too roaming the grounds at Zhuo Yeh Indigo House  in Sanyu.  I didn’t get very close for a picture as I didn’t want the chicken to go scattering away before I could take a shot.

I didn’t know that chickens love roosting in trees. I always thought the they stayed on the ground or in the hen house when it was time for a rest. Really interesting to see them perching on branches on a tree.

The kids are not very big fans of animals so we didn’t put the Zoo or farm stay on our schedule  for this trip.

We did spot a few cranes at the river side in Danshui when we went there for a morning walk.
