A flying start. Looking for more. Interesting that your Indian Paradise FC has what looks like a pure white belly.

@Tdgraves now that people start returning from tropical trips is when I start feeling dwarfed :D.

 

Great pictures, my favorites are the paradise flycatchers.

@Tdgraves I knew that Sri Lanka will deliver, on all levels! Looking forward to see all of the beautiful birds, and of course also to read through the trip report.

The next day we had a boat trip down the Hamilton canal to the Negombo lagoon before driving up to tea country. As usual, boats are an excellent way of seeing birds.

Off to a great start, glad to hear you enjoyed your Sri Lanka trip. Particularly like the Flycatchers and the Waterhen. And that Green-Backed Heron really is everywhere.
