Small Blue Kingfisher

Alcedo coerulescens Vieillot, 1818

The Cerulean Kingfisher (Alcedo coerulescens) is a near passerine bird in the kingfisher (Alcedo) genus which is found in parts of Indonesia. With an overall metallic blue impression, it is very similar to the Common Kingfisher, but it is white underneath instead of orange. Source: Wikipedia
