Male, seen very close to previous observation. Feathers on top of his head were raised, then he regurgitated a pellet, then he lowered the feathers on his head and preened. He was perched on the railing of the 'pier'. Now I have seen a male there, and a female, not at the same time.

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.
