Bird Watching

While staying at our luxury Ella boutique hotel, you can not only wake up to the harmonious melody of birdsong but also get a chance to see these natural musicians in action, as bird watching is one of the most popular things to see in Ella.

Sri Lanka is recognized as one of the ten global bio diversity hot spots in the world with a range of both endemic and migrant birds. If you are an avid bird watcher, you will be thrilled to hear that out of the plethora of birds that roam the skies and forests of Sri Lanka, 27% or 63 species of resident birds of the country call the estate our boutique hotel is situated on, their home.

While trekking through the lush green fields of Ella, you will be able to spot a horde of winged beauties like the chirruping Sri Lanka Hanging Parrot, the fiery Scarlet Minivet and the majestic and brightly coloured Ceylon Jungle Fowl, which is the country’s national bird. Babblers, Woodpeckers, Flycatchers, Minivit, Barbets, Hill Mynas and Chestnut headed Bee-eaters are some of the most commonly seen birds of the area.

When setting out on your exciting journey of bird watching, remember to be dressed in sombre colours such as greens, browns, greys etc. so as to stay camouflaged.
