Birding Excursions in Sri Lanka
From bird lovers to bird lovers!  

Our passionate birding guides invite you to explore Sri Lanka’s extraordinary world of colorful birds and fascinating flora and fauna. Sri Lanka is a true paradise for Ornithologists. Of the 427 recorded species, 250 are resident and 33 are endemic to the country. Sri Lanka’s high endemism surpasses countries like Costa Rica and with such a variety of environments ranging from wet to dry zone, forest to jungle, and hill country to lowlands, there's no end to the fascinating locations in which to spot many of these beautiful birds.  

Most of the endemic birds, such as the striking red-faced malkoha and green-billed coucal live in the wet zone, while the hill-country is home to Sri Lanka whistling thrush and the yellow-eared bulbul. Others, like the brilliantly plumaged jungle fowl, and the shy brown-capped babbler can be found in forests and sanctuaries throughout the island.

In the dry zone, the large lakes attract numerous varieties of duck, while large aquatic birds such as the stork, heron, egret, spoonbill, pelican, and ibis can easily be seen in the wetlands.

Around mid-August the first migratory species arrive in Sri Lanka. Large flocks of sandpipers, stints, plovers, terns and harriers fly over from Northern India, Siberia, Scandinavia and Western Europe and settle along the lagoons and salterns of the eastern, north-western and south-eastern coasts. Other migratory birds, such as tree warblers, thrushes and cuckoos can be seen in the forested areas of Sri Lanka.
