Birds of Sri Lanka

A selection of pictures taken in January and February 2004

The Bulbuls

Five species of Bulbul were seen, and all were photographed. Red-vented Bulbuls were very common and allowed us to get very close on several occasions.

The Black-crested Bulbul was only seen at a distance in the Simpson's Forest, where the Black Bulbul was also seen in flocks, but rarely close.

The Yellow-browed Bulbul was seen at Bodhinagala and Sinharaja where this one was photographed.

Finally a flock of Yellow-eared Bulbuls was photographed in gardens behind St. Andrews Hotel in Nuwara Eliya.
