Medium sized bird, slate blue back, white front. Slate blue and rust red bands going across the chest.
Perched on top of tree singing.
Single on river
In less than five weeks, we will be back in Germany. Good for the food, bad for nature 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.
