 Here are some of the birds and critters I have spotted on Geoje over the past few weeks.  The Eastern Buzzards I've been seeing lately have largely had rufous throats.  Something I have also noticed is that I only see Long-billed Plovers in the winter here, but they are supposed to be resident.  Perhaps they are undertaking some kind of small-scale seasonal migration within the country?
