Sri Lanka

221. Gull-billed Tern (Gelochelidon nilotica)
This one seems to be a non-breeding male.

222. Yellow-wattled Lapwing (Vanellus malabaricus)
While I had captured its cousin the Red-wattled Lapwing multiple times, this one had evaded me so far.

223. Common Spoonbill (Platalea leucorodia)
Unfortunately in this pic, the feature that gives this bird its name is not visible.

224. Green Imperial Pigeon (Ducula aenea)

184. Changeable Hawk Eagle (Nisaetus cirrhatus)
I already have this in the roster, but definitely got a better picture this time.

225. Spotted Redshank (Tringa erythropus)

226. Great Thick-knee (Esacus recurvirostris)

227. Little Stint (Erolia minuta)

228. Unknown

229. Unknown


  1. Have you logged 'The White Bellied Sea Eagle'? If not, head to Grande Island in Goa> Climb up to the Lighthouse> look east ward for a nest in the trees. Also, what book are you refering for the numbering of these birds?

  2. Yet another reason to go to Goa ! :) This number is a running count that I keep of every unique species I photograph.

  3. Loved the shots.. err.. birds. Felt bad for no.173 and Lotens one for not making it your top list. needless to say I am a follower now.
