About this book

Korea's birds deserve a wider audience. The country's geographical location, topography, temperate climate, and wealth of diverse habitats combine to support an extraordinarily attractive avifauna. Many visitors to Korea see the impressive metropolitan centers of Seoul or Busan, and others may visit Jejudo Island's black sand beaches or hike the popular mountain trails. Fewer see the more hidden parts of the country: the western offshore islands, the scattered and diminishing wetlands, the picturesque east coast fishing villages, the mountain hamlets and the river valleys.

We can glimpse these places through the birds that live there. Moreover, we can glimpse something else – hints of Korea's people, culture, and history. A picture of a bird yields a narrow but genuine window into a country's identity. What a country's arts or folklore or language says about nature – or says by means of nature – has a special authenticity.

Above all, there are the birds themselves, in all their many types of beauty. Korea Through her Birds seeks to introduce the birds: through photographs, through descriptions of their lives, and through the ways our different cultures, Western and Asian both, perceive them.
