Trips

Around The World in 66 Days

2/23/2013: After our trip to the wilderness, we had a short time to visit Thettakad before catching our onward flight. We stayed inside the sanctuary with a very nice family, and the owner of the house was nice enough to drive us to visit a couple of key spots.

In the morning, we went out looking for the Sri Lanka Frogmouth, and after looking in several spots, we finally found a pair hidden in some trees.
