Sri Lanka blue magpie
SINHARAJA FOREST RESERVE SRI LANKA
For a small country, Sri Lanka has a good number of species found nowhere else in the world, and 19 (out of 20 endemics in total) can be seen at Sinharaja Forest Reserve. With its bold chestnut-and-vivid-blue plumage and bright red bill, eye rings, legs and feet, the blue magpie is as spectacular as it is rare. Though finding wildlife in dense rainforest is never easy, this can be a noisy species that moves around in flocks of as many as six or seven individuals.
