Tairo-ike Pond, believed to be a caldera formed from volcanic eruption 2000 years ago, is one of the best spots on Miyakejima Island for birdwatching. Home to countless wild species including the Izu thrush, Iijima’s leaf warbler, and Japanese wood pidgeon, the area attracts perhaps the world’s largest flock particularly of Iijima’s leaf warbler between April and June.
