Exhausted Indian Pitta rescued in Wellawatte

26 Nov
On 29th October, we could rescue an exhausted Indian Pitta found in a garden in Wellawatte. Sena Fernando who is an active participant ofMigrantWATCH 2013/14 alerted us about an exhausted bird found in his friend – Manel Fernando’s house in Francis Lane. The Indian Pittahas been later brought to University of Colombo and given water (as shown in the first image). Some earth worms too has been offered to the exhausted bird. The Indian Pitta was found fit enough to manage on its own in the afternoon and after putting a ring, the Indian Pitta has been released to a suitable location in the evening.
