Birds I have seen

Oriental Dwarf Kingfisher


At my journey to Kithulgala I saw a tiny little bird which is very colorful.
It was on a tree near to the Kalani River which is flow through the Kithulgala.
At that time I had bird guide and I searched it to identify the creature.

It was the smallest and the most beautiful Kingfisher who lived in SriLanka
who named as Oriental Dwarf Kingfisher. His length is about 13cm and
he rarely see in open areas.
Its call is high-pitched and usually lived in mid hill wooden gardens.

It was the nicest and colorful bird I have seen at that time.
Please be alert when you passing a river bank near to a forest so
you will be lucky as me to see this nice bird.
