Banded Kingfisher ( Lacedo palchella ) 21.5 - 24.5 cm

This is another uncommon specie. Bird watchers would also have it in their list of birds to look out for. I was lucky to chance upon the female in a recent birding trip. I was drawn to the calls which grew closer and closer. With the help of my bins (binocular) I scanned the branches of trees in the vicinity. I finally found it perched on a branch some 30 meters up. It was a great find! And it stayed in the area for about 30 minutes, much to my delight!
