About this book

The first major work on the birds of Sri Lanka, then Ceylon, was A History of the Birds of Ceylon by Australian Captain Vincent Legge in 1878. He concluded then that there were 47 endemic species of birds in this country. S.D. Saparamadu revisits this classical work and gives complete and unabridged accounts of the endemic species described therein.
