Deepal Warakagoda is Sri Lanka’s best-known ornithologist and is one of the authors of the Field Guide to the Birds of Sri Lanka (Helm Field Guides 2012).
His knowledge and experience of bird sounds was instrumental in him finding the Serendib Scops Owl and he was the lead author on the scientific paper that described this species in 2004. With his help, we hope to find one tucked up at its daytime roost during our tour to Sri Lanka.
Deepal has many years of experience working as a bird guide and is also very knowledgeable about the island’s mammals and butterflies.
Deepal Warakagoda will be leading on the following tours...
Jewel of the Indian Ocean
