Bodhinagala

Bodhinagala is a relatively small tract of secondary lowland rainforest, with a Buddhist hermitage located centrally. It is surprisingly rich floristically and holds a number of endemic fauna within relatively easy reach of the commercial capital of Colombo.

Wildlife

Wildlife

Bodhinagala's claim to fame with birders is as a reliable site for the endemic Green-billed Coucal. A number of other endemics such as Ceylon Spurfowl, Yellow-fronted Barbet, Ceylon Small Barbet, Black-capped Bulbul, Spot-winged Thrush and sub-continental endemics such as Ceylon Frogmouth and Malabar Trogon are present. Butterflies include the Tawny Rajah. The endemic Purple-faced Leaf and Toque Monkeys and Grizzled Indian Squirrel are the more visible of the mammals

Getting there
