Pic of the Day – Forest kingfisher

Another birding day today. I am pleased to add to my collection this bird which has lovely colors.

My collection stands at 25.

The forest kingfisher (Todiramphus macleayii), also known as the Macleay’s or blue kingfisher, is a species of kingfisher in the subfamily Halcyoninae, also known as tree kingfishers. It is a predominantly blue and white bird. It is found in Indonesia, New Guinea and coastal eastern and Northern Australia. Like many other kingfishers, it hunts invertebrates, small frogs, and lizards.
