Sri Lanka 2017 (Day 4)

My sincere apologies to anyone following my blog for the delay in updating this trip report.  Day 4 we were brought on an early morning safari to Horton Plain's and World's End.  We spent much of the morning watching for one endemic the Whistling Thrush but had no fortune.  But we did see loads of other good birds that included, Yellow-eared Bulbul, Paddyfield Pipit, Dark-fronted Babbler, Zitting Cistocola, Sri Lanka Woodpigeon, Pied Bushchat, Dull Blue Flycatcher, Indian Blackbird, Sri Lanka Bush Warbler, Oriental Honey Buzzard and lots of Junglefowl along with many more common bird species.
