On the way to Cheorwon, we stopped at several locations where Byoungwoo, our guide, showed us wonderful Korean birds.
The mighty Han River
BUT! There were plenty of other birds for us to watch.
Whooper Swans (Oohakuchoオオハクチョウ) - a lot of them!
A raft of Goldeneyes (Hoojirogamoホオジロガモ)
Whooper Swans, Taiga Bean Geese (Oohishikuiオオヒシクイ) and Mallard (Magamoマガモ)
familiar Spot-billed Ducks (Karugamoカルガモ) & Eurasian Teals (Kogamoコガモ)
This handsome male Daurian Redstart (Jobitakiジョウビタキ) was foraging in the shrub by the river.
At another location by the Han
We were lucky to see two species of eagles!
Steller's Sea Eagle (Oowashiオオワシ) taken by Byoungwoo. Awesome!
In the river below the eagles were some sawbills.
Common Mergansers (Kawa-aisaカワアイサ)
It was only a couple of hours after our birding trip started but we already saw quite a few lovely birds by the river, thanks to Byoungwoo.
