The Kingfishers

Four species of Kingfisher were seen, this Common Kingfisher was beside the road at Yala while the Pied Kingfisher was hovering overhead.

The Stork-billed Kingfisher was seen at Negombo and Yala area, this one being at Tissamaharama.

White-throated Kingfishers were seen in most areas but never close enough for a good photograph.
