Green Sandpiper
(කොල සිලිබිල්ලා)
Tringa ochropus

Based on the white eyebrow not extending behind the eye, greenish legs and the dark olive-brown upperparts, I believe this is a Green Sandpiper.

 

Seen at Yala National Park and captured with my point-and-shoot camera.

Doubtful identification

Wood Sandpiper
(වන සිලිබිල්ලා)
Tringa glareola

First spotted at 'Anawilundawa' where he was all by himself as the lake has almost dried out.

 

Next photographed in Mannar. Based on the sturdier bill compared to a breeding Marsh Sandpiper, I believe this is a Wood Sandpiper.​

What a beautiful bird.

Common Sandpiper
(පොදු සිලිත්තා)
Actitis hypoleucos

This beautiful bird was first spotted at 'Bundala' National Park. I believe its a Green Sandpiper as its features, in my opinion, resembles a Common Sandpiper than a Wood Sandpiper or a Green Sandpiper.

 

I took photos again of this beauty in Bundala on a different day.

Arenaria interpres

These bunch of birds was seen at 'Bundala' National Park on a September morning. These winter visitors have just arrived in Sri Lankan shores as the winter season starts in September. 

 

Came across them again in April. By now they are in full breeding plumage.
