Birds of Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka is a birder’s paradise. A tropical island in the Indian Ocean situated 10 degrees north of the equator, boasting of diverse and favourable climatic conditions and natural habitats such as forests, scrublands, grasslands, wetlands, seas and agricultural lands. The country is home to 439 species of birds of which 236 are breeding residents, 203 migrants and the rest vagrants. For a country as small as Sri Lanka having 33 endemic species and 68 endemic subspecies of birds with a species endemism of 11% goes to demonstrate why Sri Lanka is one of the finest birding destinations in the world. This includes endemics such as Fowls, Pigeons, Parrots, Parakeets, Malkoha, Coucal, Owl, Owlet, Hornbill, Barbet, Magpie, Bulbul, Warbler, Babbler, Thrush, White-eye, Mynah, Starling, Flycatcher, Flowerpecker, Pigeon, Barbet, Flameback, Woodshrike, Drongo and Swallow.

Clients Review

Our tour started at Wilpattu Safari Camp, which is brilliantly run by owner Namal who knows all about the wildlife in the park and caters for keen photographers. Next onto Habarana and The Other Corner provided very good accommodation adjacent a beautiful lake full of birdlife. TOC has a resident naturalist, Dhilip, who took us birdwatching in the resort surrounds.

We very much enjoyed Bundala NP, great for birdwatching and spotting elephants in a very quiet park.

Overall a great experience and we highly recommend Best of Lanka.
