The Federation of Environmental Organizations of Sri Lanka (FEO) in partnership with the Field Ornithology Group of Sri Lanka (FOG SL) and supported by Otara, will launch the inaugural Colombo Bird Race on the 21st of February 2015.
Our objective is to raise awareness of the spectacular range of our urban wildlife in and around Colombo and generate an interest in conserving green spaces within our city. Colombo with its old growth avenues and wetlands is home to a remarkable range of resident birds species. These species numbers are further enhanced during the winter months by migratory birds.

TIME: 6.30am to 10.30am
VENUE: Thalangama Lake and 2 other wetland sites.
TEAM: 5 persons (max) per team
CATEGORY: Professionals, Enthusiasts & Kids (8-15)
The team that identifies the highest number of different species within the allotted time wins the race.
