Stork-billed Kingfisher

Halcyon capensis

This is the largest Kingfisher in Malaysia and Singapore, and is found mainly at rivers and large waterbodies. I found this in 2007 at the Sungei Buloh Wetlands Reserve in Singapore amongst the mangrove trees, and in March, 2009 in mainland Penang, Malaysia. The Singapore bird is a ringed bird and may well be resident.
