This is a collection of some rare birds which you cannot see often. It was very difficult to film and spot them with so much of the lush green from the huge wide spread trees around. Some places were dark and you couldn't even see the sky.
Also there were lots of leeches and once when I looked at my leg there were about 10 and it was an unpleasant sight. :)) So therefore I didn't film very much inside the forest as I was concerned about this!! Bcz of this I was able to enjoy the amazing nature in the forest.
It is unbelievable to hear the sounds of a Rainforest with so much of unusual calls and the richness of various different sounds.This journey was unforgettable for me bcz I still could feel the sensation of this forest..
I had a great chance to film 2 endemic birds in Sri lanka which were The Black-capped Bulbul & Sri lanka Hanging Parrot (Ceylon Lorikeet ). The Ceylon Lorikeet is the smallest member of Sri lanka's parrot family and unfortunately you will see them only for a few seconds.
You will also see in this video as follows,
Endemic Black-capped Bulbul & Ceylon Lorikeet, Paradise flycatchers, Tickell's Blue Flycatcher, Drongo-Cuckoo, Lesser Yellownape & Greater Flameback.
The Tickell's Blue Flycatcher was more close to a border village and therefore you will hear them talking :)...
I will just mention below the names of the rare bird calls at each capture for your information so that you could identify them from their calls.

At last with this short journey I could film 2 endemic birds and 6 endemic calls of birds and it was a very special event in my bird journeys :)
All my videos filmed by me so far are original captures and sound recordings. I hope that you will appreciate more the bird sounds than the bird captures:)
