Pied Kingfisher (12)

Kingfishers have been one of my favorite bird species. So once I saw this Pied Kingfisher, I couldn't resist clicking few pics though it was perched quite far away on one of the many islands inside the marshy Bharatpur Bird Sanctuary. Had taken a series of shots and this is the only pic that came out as a decent one. I had to crop this image heavily to present it in this form. Not the sharpest by any means; maybe a tripod would have helped.

Info:

These are widespread residents. These Kingfishers have white-streaked black crowns and crests, white supercilium contrasting with broad black eye-strips. The underparts are white with black and white wings & tails.

Habitat: These are found near still waters, slow moving rivers, streams, tidal creeks and pools.

Thanks for viewing
