Rangirigama Birding Trail
Our Open Aviary
A mere 15 minutes from the Vil Uyana ecosphere is a bordering haven for endemic and migratory birds. Rangirigama boasts over 120 recorded species, accounting for nearly a quarter of all bird species present in Sri Lanka.
Led by our resident naturalist on a lush trail through provincial paddy fields, you will settle upon the banks of the Rangirigama Lake – which is not only a hotspot for migratory birds in winter seasons, but also some of Sri Lanka’s iconic species including the common kingfisher, peacocks, egrets, brahminy kites and purple coots to name a few. Rarer birds such as the fish owl, green pigeon and hornbill also soar through Rangirigama, above their wild cohabitants such as the marsh crocodile, grey langur and toque macaque who have also made this habitat their home.
