Geoje birds over the past few weeks

Long-tailed Tit Aegithalos caudatus
    Eurasian Bullfinch Pyrrhula pyrrhula (rosacea - more on Bullfinches soon)
Eurasian Siskin Spinus spinus
Tree Sparrow Passer montanus
Eurasian Magpie Pica pica
female Northern Pintail Anas acuta 
male Mallard Anas platyrhynchos (coming out of eclipse plumage)
Dead duck
Northern Lapwing Vanellus vanellus - meow!
  It's getting coooooold!  The winter ducks are starting to arrive in force on the saltwater canal near my apartment - mostly Spot-billed, Eurasian Wigeon, and Eurasian Teal.  I've noticed at least a dozen Little Grebes on this same canal - they seem to be much more plentiful than last year.
