Biography

Deepal Warakadoda is Sri Lanka's leading ornithologist. A tour leader, photographer and conservationist, Deepal made his name with his stunning 2002 discovery of the Serendib Scops Owl in Sri Lanka's Sinharaja Forest. This owl was a species completely new to scienc – the holy grail for any birdwatcher.

Richard Grimmett and Carol and Tim Inskipp are widely respected as the leading experts on the birds of southern Asia. Their major work was the epic Birds of the Indian Subcontinent, from which has sprung several highly acclaimed field guides.

Media reviews

"[...] The artwork is generally of a very high standard and, where appropriate, distinctive plumages and races are shown. The races illustrated are of course those that occur in Sri Lanka rather than elsewhere in the Indian Subcontinent. For species often seen and identifiable in flight, such as larger waterbirds, shorebirds, raptors, and seabirds, there are good flight illustrations. Birds of Sri Lanka is an excellent piece of work and a true field guide, fitting neatly into a large pocket or small bag. In conclusion then, this is the crucial guide for anyone intent on birding on the beautiful island of Sri Lanka."
– Frank Lambert (10-04-2012), read the full review at The Birder's Library

"[...] This book will appeal to anyone with an interest in Sri Lanka’s birds, and is a must if you are travelling to this delightful island. I won’t be giving up my copy of Henry just yet, but my baggage just got heavier."
– Peter Kennerley, British Birds
