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.
