This is a White-breasted Kingfisher (Halcyon smyrnensis), one of seven species of Kingfisher found in Sri Lanka.  The bird, as its name implies, has a white bib-like patch on its breast surrounded by chocolate brown plumage.Its back and wings are a beautiful turquoise blue. It has a large wing patch, which is prominent in flight. The White-breasted Kingfisher seldom, if ever, eats fish. It eats small crustacea, frogs, grasshoppers, lizards etc. This is one of the few kingfishers that alight on the ground regularly to feed and is more often heard rather than seen.


A large canvas print is a fantastic way to inexpensively make a dramatic statement.
