Deepal Warakagoda lives in Sri Lanka, where he where operates The Bird and Wildlife Team, our ground agents on the island.
One of Sri Lanka’s most active birders, Deepal is co-editor of the Ceylon Bird Club’s bulletin. He recently discovered the hitherto unknown Serendib Scops Owl, the first new Sri Lankan bird in 132 years. Deepal also has the discovery of numerous significant range expansions to his credit, most recently Sri Lanka’s previously unknown population of Marshall’s Iora. WINGS has been working with Deepal since our very first Sri Lanka tour, in 1996.
