Today our main story is about Black-faced Spoonbills.
We have decided to design a black-faced dish. Does it use the meat of Black-faced birds?
Recently, we have been a lot of chances to go back to Tainan that let us can find more stories about ecology again. Our inspirations come from everywhere, accordingly, we've designed a Black-faced Spoonbill dish. (Of course, can not using the meat of Black-faced Spoonbills.)
After thinking a long time, drew a draft which was Kindergarten grade at first.
However, the shape of the cooked dish was so different.
How does this new secret dish taste? Let's wait and see.
There are a series of new exotic dishes coming 2021.
【The Little House】

This small dish hides much meaning, although, it is just only a shape of the black-faced for now.
1. A part of Black-faced comes from the border between North and South Korea, also flies to the Jeju Island of southern Korea in winter. Hence we put some snacks which the shape of small fish and crab from Korea. Small fishes and shrimps are the main food of Black-faced spoonbills.
2. Egrets are in fields which means ecological coexistence and non-toxic farming. Black-faced Spoonbills and Egrets are good friends for foraging together and watch each other's back. Thus, we use the first-class of rice which name is Lu-Syun.
Lu-Syun rice is farmed by non-toxic farming.
3. Pesticide-free herb from the Little house - Mint leaves.
4. Pesticide-free tomatoes from Tainan which aka Handsome.
Hope that can more understand the stories of Black-faced Spoonbills and Migrant birds by this Black-faced Spoonbills dish.
(Stories of Mandarin and English versions are beginning.)
It is time to start a journey while the cold of the north wind blows in mid-September. The leader of black-faced Spoonbills will sound a long bird call, then a migrant journey of 17~20 days will begin which over 2 thousand kilometers.
How does succeed to lead the flock to complete this survival travel?
The leader bird is really cool within the strong wind.
The bird takes the lead to fly which can let other partners reduce the air resistance and the energy cost.
【Interesting】Guess, Why Black-faced Spoonbills have an Afro-hair?
1. The Afro-hair by the wind due to taking the lead to fly.

The answer is,
A frightened and angry or the reproductive period Black-faced Spoonbill will become to have an Afro-hair.
Once a local guide in Kinmen said, they seemed to not watch any Black-faced Spoonbill with an Afro-hair style. Umm?

It's time to say goodbye to Taiwan when Black-faced Spoonbills have yellow breeding plumage.
They will return to the faraway north again when April and May coming.
Black-faced Spoonbills have many natural enemies and good friends.
Natural enemies：Among them the most harm is from stray dogs and tourists.
Good friends：Egrets and friendly fishermen.
Fish farms will be dried out for exposure to the sun; fishermen have intended to leave some water in fish farms, where have some little fishes and shrimps. Black-faced Spoonbills knew it so they fly over thousands of kilometers to come here every year. Until the next March when the south wind starts to blow, they follow the route of generations to fly back the north. This is travel for a life cycle of new Black-faced Spoonbills.
