Pied Kingfisher

This is an uncommon bird in Central Thailand where it is found feeding in bodies of water.
It is the only Kingfisher that hovers before it launches an aerial attack to snatch fish out of the river.
The bird is widespread all the way from Western Africa. It nests in a hole by a river bank.
