Thriving: Blue-Eared Kingfisher

3rd April 2010, Kemensah, Selangor

I see  Blue-Eared Kingfishers on almost every trip now in Kemensah.

Glad to see that the species is doing well  here. This is a different bird than the one shot a fortnight ago,  a juvenile female. The female has an orangey  lower mandible as opposed to the black of the male. The cheek is still reddish indicating that it’s a juvenile bird. 

I’ll be trying for  two different species of  Kingfishers tomorrow, hope they are  there.


  1. Super pictures, nice poses captured - that blue is really intense.

  2. Yeah! The other day, the guy flew near to the Marcaranga tree. Before he could perch, saw me and off again. No harvest for me!
