    Bird ID - Sri Lanka

    Hi, Saw a small group of these while on a tour in Yala National Park 10/2/17. There were about 10 birds, but our guide could not identify them, thinking they were possibly migrants? I think the photos are male and female rather than two different types of bird. Any help?? Regards Phil
