Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Medium-sized kingfisher of shaded mountain streams in mature hill forest. Like a larger version of Common Kingfisher, but much darker and with no orange behind the ear. Bill is heavy and all-dark; its length and girth give the bird a heavy-headed appearance. Perches low over the water on boulders and low-hanging branches, from which it gives a hoarse, rasping call.
