Pied Kingfisher

Pied Kingfisher (Ceryle rudis, 斑鱼狗).

There are three pied kingfishers which I see not infrequently. Sometimes they stray over to the Xiang but usually they stay within their territory in the Meixi river (really a stream). Recently they have been disturbed by construction and are further afield. This one spent about thirty minutes surveying the lakes in Wangling park before heading elsewhere.
