Description

Downstream of waterfall. Was perched on a branch, then flew upstream. Like every other kingfisher I've encounter on the creek, it flew over the water until it got near me, went through the forest on the opposite side of the creek, then peeled back in over the water once it'd passed me. I think it gave me about a 50' berth.

Description from Wikipedia

The Coraciiformes are a group of usually colorful near passerine birds including the kingfishers, the Hoopoe, the bee-eaters, the rollers, and the hornbills. They generally have syndactyly, with three forward-pointing toes (and toes 3 & 4 fused at their base), though in many kingfishers one of these is missing.

No range data available.
