  Bundala includes jungle, marshland and salt flats so it is an ideal place to see most of Sri Lanka's birdlife. We saw dozens of of birds that I didn't get a chance to snap. 

 We saw Kingfishers and Spoonbills, Bulbuls, Parakeets in the wild, Myna birds, Thick-knees, Stilts, Lapwings, Wagtails, Plovers, Sandpipers, Cormorants, and Terns and the national bird of Sri Lanka, the jungle fowl.  We saw a few of those running around.  I also have some pictures of the gang when our jeep stopped to have a break.
