62. - Black-winged Stilt. I've got to stick to nr. 62 for one more photo. I noticed I had posted doubles. Never thought I'd catch myself cheating... :) I'm now keeping track on a spreadsheet!

@@PeterHG

So many beautiful birds, and your photographs are stunning. (And up to 70already :) ) I have really enjoyed reading your thread - it is not really fair to pick any out but the two sorts of Bee-eaters are wonderful.

 

As an aside - where did you go in Sri Lanka? Was it specifically a birding trip or did you do other things as well? (We went independently a number of years ago - mostly cultural with bits of wildlife)

Thanks @@TonyQ! You might say our trip was mostly wildlife with bits of culture :). We visited National Parks like Yala, Bundala and Wilpattu, but also cities like Pollonaruwa, Kandy and Galle. The last 3 days we spent at a beach location in the south. We saw some 180 species of birds and I was fortunate enough to catch quite a few of them on camera. All in all a wonderful trip!
