Recommended Posts

Sri Lanka Blue Magpie (Urocissa ornata)

This large beautiful bird cannot be mistaken for any other Sri Lankan species. Mainly bright blue with red bill, and eye-ring and legs; chestnut head and neck; long graduated blue tail with black and then white tip. Sexes alike. It inhabits the forests of the hills and wet-zone foot-hills. A scarce bird seen in small family parties up to six or seven, but pairs and solitary individuals are sometimes observed.
