Rufous-backed Kingfisher

Ceyx rufidorsa Strickland, 1847

The Rufous-backed Kingfisher (Ceyx rufidorsa) is a species of bird in the Alcedinidae family. It is found in Brunei, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, and Thailand in tropical lowland forests near lakeshores and streamsides. The small bird is solitary and hunts from a low perch over the water by diving for insects and frogs. It is sometimes considered a subspecies of the Oriental Dwarf Kingfisher. Source: Wikipedia
