The pair of Sri Lanka Frogmouths above were one of the 12 species of resident night birds seen out of 15 in a successful Absolute Birding tour that I guided in March, 2010 with Chris Holtby and David Thrussel from the UK.
Keeping their promise, Chris and Dave have done a detailed tour report of this birding tour, which saw us bagging 230 species of birds including all 33 endemics. The report weighs 26MB! (Please drop me a line if you cannot open it, so that I can e-mail it to you. My e-mail is gallicissa AT gmail DOT com )
Photographically speaking, this tour was a big learning curve for me, as thanks to Chris and Dave, I got introduced to the art of low-light bird photography.
On other matters, I am really looking forward for the Cricket World Cup Finals tomorrow between India and Sri Lanka. Although I earnestly want Sri Lanka to win, my prediction is Indians, with blessings of 1.21 billion people—17% of the world population—will score a hard-fought victory over the Lankans. I shall be happy to be proven wrong!
