Notes

  • S5389 - 413: The AWC 2004 count in Korea was 455,000 birds. Numbers in other countries tiny by comparison. 505 reported a count of 658,000 in Korea in 2004. This may be over-estimated (199).
  • S8067 - In spite of the possible over-estimation of a single huge flock, its total population may be 500,000-1,000,000 with the highest count of 1,063,280 birds in Korea in January 2010 (NIBR 2010).
