Today I spent a couple pre-work hours visiting Namsan Gongwon, South Mountain Park. It houses Seoul Tower, and is basically several
pathways of stone steps up the steep hill. There was a little too much human activity to see many birds, but I did manage to
photograph two common species: Varied Tit and Rufous Turtle Dove. It is often exceedingly overcast and smoggy here, which poses some
unique photography challenges.
