Gadadessa is an ideal place for bird watching. You can see more than 25 species of birds at the resort. Few endemic birds are also among them, but during the South-west monsoon, a number of migratory birds winter here, making the annual journey from an area extending from the Himalayas to Siberia. The surrounding area is considered a good nesting ground for many colorful birds. Serpent Eagles are a familiar sight, often seen flying around in search of prey. The Spotted Dove, Ceylon Fly Catcher and the Orange mini-vet are often seen in the immediate vicinity.
