|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
Size: 14 cm
Location: Ulu Langat (KL) / Panti Forest Reserve (Johor)
Distinguished from Black-Backed Kingfisher by its paler wings; also note lack of black spot behind ear. Sometimes it included in Black-Backed Kingfisher as hybridization does occurs.
Whistling chi-chip call.
Strictly a forest bird, only occurring within primary and mature secondary rainforest in the lowlands. Shy; perches low. It’s usually seen flying low across the forest trail, like a tiny orange projectile, often near a small stream. The nest is built in a cavity in low earth embarkments.
A scarce resident in South Thailand, Malaysia and Brunei but extinct in Singapore.
