Saturday morning (voting day in Taiwan) 24 November 2018, drive with Philip and Leigh to Wulai's Fushan Village 福山 to hike a little ways into the Fuba trail 巴福越嶺古道 to assess its condition. With a 10% chance of rain in the forecast, we were met with misting, sprinkling, and occasionally pouring. Not ideal conditions to be on a trail with steep slides and slippery ground. Dan turns around earlier than the others and walked back along the road. Saw several Varied Tits (Parus varius/赤腹山雀), Bronzed Drongos (Dicrurus aeneus/小卷尾), and Gray-chinned Minivets (Pericrocotus solaris/灰喉山椒鳥).
