Welcome to the giants country

National bird of Sri Lanka with amazing colors and quite difficult bird to photograph as it moves fast on the turf. I manage to capture this beautiful bird at Horton Plains National Park as he walks down on a small foot path near the wildlife bungalow (inside the park) that we stayed.

The Sri Lankan junglefowl, also known as the Ceylon junglefowl, is a member of the Galliformes bird order which is endemic to Sri Lanka, where it is the national bird. It is closely related to the red junglefowl, the wild junglefowl from which the chicken was domesticated

Location: Horton Plains National Park - Sri Lanka
Name: Sri Lankan Junglefowl (Male)
Endemism : Endemic to Sri Lanka
Scientific name: Gallus lafayettii
Conservation status: Least concern
