"But now ask the animals and let them teach you; AND THE BIRDS OF THE HEAVEN, and let them tell you. Or let the fish of the sea declare to you. Who among all these does not know that The Hand of The Lord has done this; In whose hand is the life of every living thing, and the breath of all mankind."

Job 12:7-10

Coal Tit & Korean Red Squirrel

It was a slow day at Dobongsan. I was quite amused by a playful Coal Tit & a Korean Red Squirrel. Two squirrels were quite busy manufacturing nests (one used brown burlap-the other used twigs in a tree hollow).

Okksu: February 26, 2010

It was quite a treat to watch a Tufted Duck couple dive close to where I had positioned myself...Jesus is very creative to say the least. On another note, how predictable am I, as compared to the mannerisms of the 'Divers'?

Uiwang Lake

It was a super day at Uiwang, despite the fact that my camera decided to freak out (time to see if Canon A/S can fix it). Massive numbers of Mallard, Spot-billed, Bean Goose, Greater White-Fronted Goose and Eurasian Teal. Highlights of the day were a Northern Goshawk feeding and 2 Red-billed starlings (a personal first).

Paldang- Feb 15th

I sure do enjoy coming out here to Paldang...It is becoming more active with bikers and hikers BUT nonetheless, for now, the birds don't seem to mind.

Hoegi station; Korea (part 2)

Cam & I have been married for 11 years. SHE makes birding so much more fun when accompanies me. She looked very beautiful today. lots of 'walkers' around but the Mallards, Teals, and Meadow buntings didn't mind...good deal!

Hoegi Station: Korea (part 1)

Cam & I decided to take a Sabbath walk along the stream near our home. We were not disappointed in the least-highlights were: Little egret, Little Grebe, Herring gull, Common Merganser, Mallard, Gadwall, Spot-billed, Green-winged Teal, Meadow bunting, Japanese wagtail, Northern Shoveler, & Parrotbills.
