White-breasted Kingfisher

Jurong Birdpark, Singapore

Scientific name: Halcyon smyrnensis (Linnaeus, 1758).

The White-breasted Kingfisher is almost double the size of the Common Kingfisher. The distinctive shape, massive red bill, white front, claret head and blue wings all make it an unmistakeable bird.

Books: Kingfishers, Bee-Eaters, & Rollers: A Handbook.
