Lazuli Kingfisher

Todiramphus lazuli (Temminck, 1830)

The lazuli kingfisher is a species of bird in the family Alcedinidae. It can be found on the islands of Seram, Ambon and Haruku.. Found singly and in pairs in lowland wooded areas, including cultivated areas and mangroves. Pale blue underside is unique among kingfishers in its limited south Moluccan range. Rowdy vocalizations include repetitive “ker-chick” series and “ki-ki-ki-ki…” calls. It gets its name due to its colour being reminiscent of Lapis Lazuli. Source: Wikipedia
