This is a blog devoted to my collection of photos of the birds of Sri Lanka. Most were taken by me. Picture above was taken at Sithulpawwa, Sri Lanka, shows a Pea-cock. Philip G Veerasingam. Contact - firstname.lastname@example.org.
A very shy bird. It announces its presence by a loud call, from a branch high up hidden among the leaves. When the coast is clear it swoops down to eat what is on offer. If it detects human presence, it flies away in a jiffy.
