Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Small bright blue and deep orange kingfisher. Almost always found above water. It patrols up and down waterways and rivers from perch to perch flying very fast, and only a few meters off the water, typically making a loud high pitched "seeeeeeeep" call. Sacred Kingfisher has similar orange-buff belly, but it is a much larger bird.
