Seogwipo area, Jeju, May 31

Bird news from Matthew Poll

I finally managed to spot a Fairy Pitta today, in a narrow and quiet valley. It was calling loudly, moving unseen through the treetops for well over an hour before it dropped down onto a lower branch for a few minutes of excellent views. Heard, but not seen in this valley were several vocal Japanese Paradise Flycatchers, as well as Common and Lesser Cuckoos.

  1. “Jewel Hunting” -not a bad way to spend your day! Jeju seems to be on fire right now. because the birds are so hot. I’ll be on the lookout this next week for Fairy Pitta in the South Gyeongsang area… just hoping the heat has spread!!
