With over 400 bird species, 200 of which are migratory from India, Scandinavia, Western Europe and Siberia, Sri Lanka offers a spectacular adventure for birdwatchers. The end of the year is your best chance to see most of the birds, which is why December has been declared the National Birdwatching Month by the Field Ornithology Group of Sri Lanka.

Kumana National Park, the Bodhinagala Forest Reserve, the Kalametiya Bird Sanctuary and many other preserves welcome nature lovers during this time by offering special tours and other activities to educate the public about bird life.
