MigrantWATCH 2016/17: The Pitta Week

21 Oct

Past records indicates that lot of Indian Pitta arrive Sri Lanka at latter part of October. Based on records shared on this FB group, a number of pitta arrived this week. It is expected more are on the way, so let’s keep an eye on the Indian Pitta on coming week as well.

Being a stockier bird, Indian Pitta show more tendency to get exhausted by its long flight as number of tired pittas found in home gardens during this period of time. So let’s pay little more attention to such troubled migrants, specially on this last week of October.

Herewith sharing one of the past article posted on MigrantWATCH blog on exhausted migrants found during month of October – https://migrantwatch.wordpress.com/2012/08/26/fly-fly-pant-pant-theres-more-to-go/
