- Specimen ID
An invisible bird calling from the undergrowth of a dense wet zone forest. A very shy and secretive species, one of the more difficult Sri Lankan endemics to catch up with. It started calling while we were walking through the forest. In the background you can hear our guide Sunil Alwis changing cassetes in an attempt to draw it nearer. We did see the bird running passed several times, but it was impossible to film. Elevation: 269 m. Date added to IBC: June 22, 2016.
