Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Dark rusty-orange kingfisher with thick lipstick-red bill. Bright azure blaze on rump most evident on flying birds. Shy and seldom seen in the open, instead preferring heavily shaded waterways in thick, tangled forests. Gives a loud descending rattle on breeding grounds; wintering birds silent.
