Kinmen, June 17 (CNA) Taiwan's outlying island of Kinmen County is a bird watchers' paradise because of its many species and its importance as a stop for migratory birds, Masahiro Hashimoto, president of the Osaka branch of the Wild Bird Society of Japan, said Monday. Hashimoto said beautiful birds such as blue-tailed bee-eaters, the hoopoe and the migratory cormorant cannot be found in Japan, making Kinmen a popular place for bird-watchers. The Japanese bird-watching groups arrived in Kinmen Sunday for a three-day bird watching tour. When the group visited the county last June, its members were surprised at how well Kinmen has maintained its biological diversity, and they vowed to return every summer and winter for bird watching activities.
