Morning tracking typically begins early, allowing visitors to witness the forest awakening. The air is crisp, and the forest is alive with the sounds of various bird species beginning their day. Sinharaja is renowned for its rich birdlife, and the morning is an ideal time to experience the symphony of birdsong. Many endemic species, such as the Sri Lanka Blue Magpie, Sri Lanka Crested Drongo, and Red-faced Malkoha, are most active during the early hours.

Sinharaja Rain Forest is a major eco tourism hot spot in Sri Lanka. The early morning safari tour to this forest reserve would be a much more enchanting tour than in the afternoon.
