Birds of Sri Lanka

A selection of pictures taken in January and February 2004

Cuckoos, Coucals & Koels

This Grey-bellied Cuckoo was seen at Yala Game Lodge, but was very camera-shy!




Coucals were seen at several locations but never stayed still out in the open. These two were seen at Hunas Falls and Kattuwa.

Koels were seen and heard all around Negombo and a male was photographed at Kattuwa but not until the last day did we get a shot of the female.
