I only visited Taiwan outside of BC but here are my favourites:

The Taiwanese subspecies of the Ring-Necked Pheasant. They are threatened by hybridization with introduced subspecies. This was photographed at a university campus in Hualien, Taiwan.

This one I first considered somewhat of a "fail". I'd seen Swinhoe's Pheasants several times before including the kangaroo hop display, but this was the first time I saw the wing-whirring display. The first time it did this there was a log obstructing my view. The second time I did not expect it as the bird posed there and I was hoping to get a closeup but at the instant I zoomed in he started whirring:
