Orange-headed Ground Thrush past records

4 Dec

FOGSL’s Dr.Sampath Seneviratne found a sub-adult Orange-headed Ground Thrush from Malabe 03rd of December night. The bird had a slight eye infection and Sampath took him to the Vet for further inspections. The bird spent the time happily in his washroom with a ferocious appetite for earth worms!!! If all goes well; Sampath was planning to release the bird during the weekend; but unfortunately the bird died.

Orange Headed Ground Thrush is a beautiful migrant. The elusive migrant has been more frequently recorded from different part of Sri Lanka.
