An unmistakable tiny, multicolored forest kingfisher confined to Sangihe. Has a large carrot-orange bill, a scaled blue cap, purplish cheeks, a white throat and slash on neck, orange underparts, a purple-tinged rufous-brown back, and a contrasting bright blue rump and tail. Juvenile duller, with a pale-tipped black bill. An inconspicuous inhabitant of lowland forest understory. Unique within range. Gives a quiet, thin, very high-pitched “tseeee” call.
