Did you know that Sri Lanka is one of the best places in the world to watch birds and it has been admired by the bird watching enthusiasts from around the world. The activity becomes more common especially around the bird sanctuaries and wetland reserves in the south east part of the island while the temperate climate is ideal for migrating birds.
Sri Lanka is home to more than 400 bird species with around 23 endemics and 200 migratory birds arriving from India, Siberia, Scandinavia and Western Europe.
