“The banded kingfisher (Lacedo pulchella) is a tree kingfisher found in lowland tropical forests of southeast Asia….
Male and female adults are very different in plumage. The male has a bright blue crown with black and blue banding on the back.
The female has rufous and black banding on the head and upperparts.”
