Nice photo Balulo - Maria, these grow to about 7 inches, so for the kingfishers we get here fairly small. We do get one small - the American Pygmy Kingfisher, at 5 inches.

Thanks for your comments!

To Maria , I don't really know.. It looks quite small. I was lucky, catching it standing on the branch, they ussually are flying very fast over the water.

Very nice first spotting on Noah - welcome to the Project! It looks fairly small; is this species smaller than other kingfishers?
