Malayan Night Heron rescued from Thimbirigasyaya

15 Nov

On Sunday, Bhathiya Senanayake reported to MigrantWATCH team that an unusual bird was presence on his neighbor Ms.Rajini Jayawardena’s garden. They said that bird seems to be injured. Getting down a photo of the bird, MigrantWATCH team identified that the bird is a Malayan Night Heron which is a rare migrant to Sri Lanka. This is the time they arrive the country, so it is assessed the best option to look at the bird where it live.

As the bird didn’t move, MigrantWATCH team made a visit to the bird. Since the habitat was not ideal for the Malayan Night Heron, it is decided to relocate it in a better habitat closer to a wetland. The bird was taken to the University of Colombo and due to release tonight (15.11.2016).
