Birds in a pond, Nallur, Jaffna, Sri Lanka.

In close proximity to the Nallur Temple is the Rio Ice-cream Bar. There is a weed grown algae covered pond. It is an area with a lot of traffic close by. I spotted these birds in the pond feeding and nesting.

House Sparrow - Passer domesticus indicus, Nuwara Eliya, Sri Lanka.


I took these photos in the Nuwara Eliya Gardens in June 2014. House Sparrows from being a very common bird in Sri Lanka, almost disappeared from sight over the last decade. They are now making a 'come-back'.

Black-headed Ibises - Threskiornis melanocephalus, Alawwa, Sri Lanka.


These are found in flock in paddy fields during the time of ploughing when earthworms are exposed.
