Kingfisher is a fascinating bird to photo-take because of its colorful and attractive feathers. There are 13 species of Kingfisher in Malaysia. Out of the 13 species, 11 species are resident birds and 2 species are winter migrant.
After 3 years of photographing wild-birds, I managed to get 8 species. I am still pursuing for the elusive 5 (Blue Banded, Black-Backed, Rufous-Backed, Banded and Brown-Winged).

1. White-throated Kingfisher (Resident Bird)

2. Collared Kingfisher (Resident Bird)

3. Blue-Eared Kingfisher (Resident Bird)

4. Stork-Billed Kingfisher (Resident Bird)

5. Ruddy Kingfisher (Resident Bird)

6. Rufous-Collared Kingfisher (Resident Bird)

7. Common Kingfisher (Winter Migrant)

8. Black-capped Kingfisher (Winter Migrant)

Thanks for viewing
