Birds Korea Annual Bird Review for 2009: now online

Birds Korea, April 23rd 2013

The eighth in the series of annual Birds Korea bird reviews by Edelsten et al. (2013) is now available online and for download:

Presenting records of over 230 species in Korea and contributions from over 130 observers and commentators, this fascinating English-language citizen science review details 2009’s first national records; first breeding records; and records of scarcely-reported species.

The reviews for years 2010-2012 are also now in preparation.

In combination with our latest bird news pages and other archives, the 2009 review helps to build an increasingly detailed picture of the changing status of many of the ROK’s bird species.

As always, your comments and contributions to this and other reviews are warmly welcomed!
