BIRDING AT THE LAKE

The best contact for any birding in Sri Lanka is the Field Ornithology Group of Sri Lanka https://fogsl.cmb.ac.lk

FOGSL is a non-profit, non-governmental organization attached to the Department of Zoology, University of Colombo, dedicated towards birding, ornithology, and conservation of nature. It has a rich history of publications, from field guides to children books.
See https://fogsl.cmb.ac.lk/publications

FOGSL also published a compact field guide (leaflet) on Birds of Urban Wetlands in Colombo
(for some extracts see below; ask FOGSL for the original)

To enjoy the diversity of the bird population visits early in the morning are recommended. There are two guesthouses (Villa Attikka and Villa Talangama) directly at the lake.


Please click on the photos below to see the names of the birds.
