Belted Kingfisher

Megaceryle alcyon (Linnaeus, 1758)

The belted kingfisher is a large, conspicuous water kingfisher, native to North America. All kingfishers were formerly placed in one family, Alcedinidae, but recent research suggests that this should be divided into three subfamilies. Source: Wikipedia
