Sri Lanka Whistling Thrush
The Sri Lanka Whistling Thrush is a secretive, ground-dwelling bird found only in dense mountain forests above 2900 ft. (900 m) in Sri Lanka. It prefers habitat close to streams, especially those in ravines and gorges. They build nests on rock ledges and in the forks of trees near waterfalls and fast moving water. Serious threats to this species are the extensive clearance and degradation of mountain forests for agriculture, single crop plantations and gem mining. This painting was created for the AFC Silent Skies mural to raise awareness about endangered birds of the world and support organizations that strive to protect them.
