Stork-billed Kingfisher

I saw this beautiful bird last year in July at Havelock Island when out for a morning walk. It was perched on an electric wire. I had to google to identify it and I think it is a stork-billed kingfisher.

Just for context, this is where the bird was sitting- zoomed out

I also got a small video of the bird on the wire. It’s handheld so a bit wobbly!

      1. Many of my jokes are never picked up by anybody. 😦

        The other day, someone posted a comment on my blog which kept my little brain occupied all day long.
        I really didn’t get the joke.
        Until I read my own article again and realized what he had alluded too.
