Sri Lanka is a tiny country with a great deal of biodiversity. The bird life of Sri Lanka is also very rich for its size with more than 500 species recorded throughout the country, of which 34 are considered endemic. Around Santani we are lucky to have noted 114 species of birds including 15 of the 34 endemic species.
Join our naturalist with some binoculars and a field guide at 6.30 am (mornings are the best time for birding) and spend a couple of hours observing resident birds on this trail before breakfast. You are very likely to see a jungle fowl scuttling under a tea tree, a hornbill jostling with its mate or a serpent eagle soaring an updraft.
