White Throated Kingfisher

White Throated Kingfisher

The Sinhagad Valley Project

Two weeks back at Sinhagad, this fellow posed for me like a professional model.

Absolutely still, cooperative and patient.

Rockstar, if you ask me 🙂

Note: This is a large kingfisher, 28 cm in length. The adult has a bright blue back, wings and tail. Its head, shoulders, flanks and lower belly are chestnut, and the throat and breast are white. The large bill and legs are bright red. The flight of the White-throated Kingfisher is rapid and direct, the short rounded wings whirring. In flight, large white patches are visible on the blue and black wings. Sexes are similar, but juveniles are a duller version of the adult. (source: wikipedia)
