Black-Capped Kingfisher

14th March 2012, Tok Kassim, Sabak, Kelantan

Local Name: Pekaka Kopiah HItam

Scientific Name: Halcyon pileata

Black-capped Kingfishers are extremely shy birds and would be spooked by the slightest movements that you make. Crouching in my car, and  then driving slowly along the dirt road to within 20m from her position.  This was the closest that I managed to get to this Kingfisher after so many years of trying.
