2022 FWI special Maki-e series “The 4 endangered native species of TAIWAN” － The Pheasant-Tailed Jacana
- The Pheasant-Tailed Jacana is the only bird species among the 8 species of pheasants in the world with breeding and non-breeding feathers and regular migration. In 1865, it was listed as the earliest bird in Taiwan by R. Swinhoe, a British diplomat in Taiwan. Pheasant-Tailed Jacana used to be widely distributed in wetlands and ponds in the plains of the whole Taiwan island. The rapid development over the past few decades has led to serious destruction and loss of the preferred habitats of water pheasants. In addition to pesticide poisoning and excessive hunting, the number of Pheasant-Tailed Jacana has dropped sharply and was on the verge of extinction for a time. The remaining ethnic groups are mainly concentrated in the water chestnut field between the Bazhang River (八掌溪) and Zengwen River (曾文溪).
- In the past 20 years, with the cooperation of the government and NGO, the number of Pheasant-Tailed Jacana has been restored from more than 50 to now more than 1,000.
