White-breasted Kingfisher (Halcyon smyrnensis)
Tissamaharama, Sri Lanka
October 2015, 06:40

The White-breasted Kingfisher is found all over the island including the hills up to 6000 feet. Birds of this species are highly conscious of their territories and will not allow another bird to come into their territory. The bird has a large, ponderous beak, which is coral red, and gives one the impression that it is a much larger bird.

As its name implies, this kingfisher has a white bib-like patch on its breast surrounded by chocolate brown plumage. Its back and wings are a beautiful turquoise blue. It has a large wing patch, which is prominent in flight.

Brahminy kite (Haliastur indus)
Langkawi, Malaysia 2014

The Brahminy Kite occurs throughout southern and South East Asia, and in Australia it is widespread along the north coast, though individual birds may wander inland along the course of large rivers.

These raptors often perch inconspicuously for long periods on exposed perches before swooping down onto prey in the water or on the ground. Their prey usually comprises fish and insects, and they often steal food from other birds, such as gulls, terns, ibis and other raptors. They also often scavenge carrion on the ground.
