As regular CFZ-watchers will know, for some time Corinna has been doing a column for Animals & Men and a regular segment on On The Track... particularly about out-of-place birds and rare vagrants. There seem to be more and more bird stories from all over the world hitting the news these days so, to make room for them all - and to give them all equal and worthy coverage - she has set up this new blog to cover all things feathery and Fortean.

Rare Cinnamon Roller Birds Known as Blue Birds in Korean Spotted on Gageo Island

SHINAN, Jun. 9 (Korea Bizwire) — Cinnamon roller birds, which are called ‘Blue bird’ in Korea, were spotted on Gageo Island in Jeollanam-do.

As blue birds in Maurice Maeterlinck’s play ‘The Blue Bird’ are hard to find, Cinnamon roller birds are rarely seen in Korea.

The birds spotted are currently resting at the island to recharge. Gageo Island is one of the Korea’s well-known rest stops for migrant birds.

According to ornithologist Go Gyeong-Nam, the island saw an unexpected number of Cinnamon roller birds passing through since April of this year.
