Tuamotu Kingfisher

Todiramphus gambieri (Oustalet, 1895)

The Tuamotu Kingfisher (Todiramphus gambieri) is a species of bird in the Alcedinidae family. It is endemic to the island of Niau in French Polynesia. Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical dry forests, plantations and rural gardens. Only 125 individuals remain in the wild. The Tuamotu Kingfisher is a multicolored, with bright blue feathers, a dusty orange head, and a bright green back. The entire population of these birds—less than 125—lives in Niau, and without serious intervention, they will no longer exist. Source: Wikipedia
