    Whiskered terns wintering in Tainan (2011/01/03)

    Winter is the time for visits from migratory birds. Tainan’s Beimen lagoon has become a habitat for whiskered terns in the tens of thousands. Around dusk, the terns perform spectacularly coordinated mid-air maneuvers that are very worth seeing.

    Tens of thousands of whiskered terns congregate in mid-air. On the direction of their leader, the flock dives from a great height at speed.

    The whiskered terns are transformed into high-speed jet fighters, skimming over the sea, rolling and circling over the water’s surface.

    A particular trait of whiskered terns is their propensity to perform various mid-air maneuvers in spirals, sprays, or tornado and funnel-shaped formations. Once they descend over the lagoon, they often somersault in the air. They do this for ten to twenty minutes before resting on oyster frames.

    The whiskered terns have been traveling south since mid September, and will spend the winter in flocks around Tainan’s Beimen district. Numbers have now reached approximately 30,000 making this a natural spectacle well worth visiting to observe in person.

    燕鷗生態季

    冬天,也是候鳥來臨的季節。在台南的北門潟湖,也就成了黑腹燕鷗的棲息地。這裡上萬隻的鳥群,到了黃昏,上萬隻的黑腹燕鷗動作、就會變得整齊劃一。這個難得一見的奇景。我們一塊來瞧瞧

    上萬隻的黑腹燕鷗,在天空集結,領袖一聲令下,黑腹燕鷗群由高空高速向下俯衝。

    黑腹燕鷗變身成高速戰鬥飛機,進行海面的低空飛行,貼著水面高速迴旋、翻滾。

    [[黑腹燕鷗專家 黃瑞興]]
    “用各種方式,螺旋狀,灑網狀,龍捲風漏斗形狀,下到瀉湖後,有時候就翻滾,翻滾的時間,差不多十幾分鐘到二十分鐘,然後再找蚵架棲息,這是牠很特別的地方”

    黑腹燕鷗就從九月中旬開始從北方南下到台南北門區集結避寒度冬,現在已經多達三萬隻,這令人嘆為觀止的鳥類奇觀,保證讓您不虛此行。
