Common and widespread kingfisher with a buff spot in front of the eyes that can extend back over the eye as a thin brow. Belly color varies from buffy-orange to white. Upperwing is entirely blue in flight, lacking the white panels of Forest Kingfisher. Perches on power-lines, and occurs in forests, parks, gardens, as well as mangroves and mudflats.
