Welcome! Don't Buy Old Growth!You have reached the realm of birder Wayne Hsu! So I managed to find an afternoon during this busy semester to fiddle around with Photoshop and create a new graphic title for this site (above). I hope you enjoy the new version as much as I do. I also added a list of all the environmental organizations that I have joined in the page About Myself. I recently completed the trip report of a month-long birding trip around Taiwan from this past summer; you may browse my photos online. I have also been able to obtain some recordings of Taiwan's birds using equipment borrowed from Cornell's Library of Natural Sounds. In the near future, I will work on putting some of them on the web. The highlight of this site, Birding in Taiwan, is not fully completed yet, but I've been adding bits to it every now and then. While I was in Mexico last summer, I wrote (on scrap paper) many more pages for this section. Now I just need to find time to type up and upload them, so be sure to check back! I also made a PhotoPoint album of some excellent bird photos my grandfather took in Taiwan; please be sure to visit! Let me introduce myself. I am a '99 graduate of Taipei American School now studying biology at Cornell University, and picking up U.S. life birds here and there. In 1999 I published a desktop calendar featuring a special selection from over 1,000 butterfly photos that I've taken in Taiwan. I hope you enjoy browsing my home page, and please come back again! Before you leave, please make your contribution to this site by signing the guestbook. Happy surfing!
