White Breasted Kingfisher

This is my second post on the white breasted kingfisher(Halcyon smyrnesis), I decided to do this one because this time around I managed to get a closer view of the bird. This kingfisher had landed on my ship when we were anchred of kandla, Gujarath.
This brilliant turquoise - blue bird with chocolate brown head and a red bill is found through out India mostly because it is least dependent on water and can survive even in forests far away from water bodies feeding on grasshoppers and other insects.
