Hado-ri, Jeju, May 7

Bird News from Matt Poll

At Hado, a gorgeous Pied Avocet fed in the company of three Black-winged Stilts, and 33 Black-tailed Godwits.  I got long, if distant looks as it fed by swimming and upending repeatedly.  Also at Hado, and nearby Ojo-ri, were single-digit numbers of MarshCommon, and Wood SandpiperCommon GreenshankCommon Redshank andFalcated Duck.

Several Rufous-tailed Robins have been heard in Seogwipo over the past few days, and several Tristram’s Buntings and a male Mugimaki Flycatcher were seen in local parks.
