First North Korea public birding trip!

Yesterday was the launch of what may be the first public birding tour of the DPRK (North Korea). Below links contain the information.

The "nearly lost" Tristram's Woodpecker, as far as I know a subspecies of the White-bellied Woodpecker, inhabits remote areas of the DPRK (North Korea). For what may be a first, the officials in the DPRK have approved a public birdwatching tour of the country. Part of the tour includes a visit to the Tristram's Woodpecker habitat near the DMZ. A link was posted yesterday at:

with details:

I recently returned from 7 days in the DPRK and must say some stereotypes we have are mostly false. They are very welcoming to tourists and the country is very safe to visit.

If anyone has further information on this Woodpecker please feel free to update!
