PLEASE! If you see any mistakes, I'm 100% sure that I have wrongly identified some birds.
So please let me know on my guestbook at the bottom of the page

Below is my bird checklist from my visit to Sri Lanka. I did safari in some of the national parks so of course, I spotted a few birds. And below is the list of birds I got pictures of during my leopard safari. Of course, I wish for some of the pictures to be of a much higher quality
