    Niaosong Village
     

    *

        Not long after Taiwan’s Recovery, legend has it that there was a large leaved fig tree which had a trunk that required five people with open arms to embrace. Throughout the year, birds such as Chinese bulbul, Japanese White-eye etc. feed off the fig tree’s fruits, hence the tree was named Bird Fig Tree by the locals. Since the Taiwanese pronunciation of “Rong” is similar to “Song”, and furthermore travelers and merchants often rested and cooled off under the tree, hence the name Niaosongjiao (Taiwanese). After the Recovery, it was changed to Niaosong Village. The Niaosong old tree was located near the Niaosong Elementary School, now it has withered and died. The remaining tree next to the roadside fence by Fulong Temple was its 4th generation descendant . Total area of the village: 9.5928km2.
