Tai Po Kau Nature Reserve, also called Tai Po Kau Special Area, is a natural reserve in the Tai Po area of New Territories in Hong Kong. This nature reserve transverses over an area of 460-hectares covered with patches of thickly forested areas which makes it the most extensive woodland in the city. The reserve consists of four main tracks alongside a short nature trail which extends along an area of 3 to 10 kilometres rendering it an ideal location for hikers, wildlife-watchers and nature lovers.
The Tai Po Kau Nature Reserve area is composed up of hilly dense woodland with several streams and rivers. These dense green woodlands offer a great habitat for various species of insects and trees. The Hong Kong Bird Watching Society also declared this as one of the best locations for spotting forest birds in the city. The Red-whiskered BulBul alongside species such as Blue-winged Minla, Velvet-fronted Nuthatch and Black-throated Laughingthrush are a common sighting in the reserve during early mornings. As a result, the nature reserve serves as a great location for a peaceful walk.
