November 14, 2016 – Banded Kingfisher (Lacedo pulchella)

Requested by: @thefireinthewire

These tree kingfishers are found in Southeast Asia, in parts of Myanmar, Vietnam, Thailand, and Indonesia. They eat a variety of insects, including grasshoppers, katydids, and crickets. Laying their eggs between January and May, they dig into rotting tree trunks and possibly stream banks to build their nests. Their call is a long whistled “wheeeoo” sound which they usually make from high perches.
