Majin, Jinju, January 30

Bird News from Mike Friel

On a very sunny day, a walk along the Namgang River near where I live revealed more than 100 Falcated Ducks sheltering close to the shore from the cold wind. I also came across a group of 7 Mandarin Ducks resting on a grassy bank by the river, then going for a swim. Going inland and up a hill I saw 4 Yellow-bellied Tits in the trees, 4 Siskins extracting seeds from cones and a Japanese Pygmy Woodpecker winkling eggs out of an insect’s nest glued to a tree.Man2                                                                                       Mandarin Duck  Aix galericulata
