Kingfisher Wong (Alcedinidae)
Status in the United States: Birds resident and migratory birds pass.
Description: upper body violet pink. The faded maroon red mouth to mouth on the bottom amber. Sam blue shiny white rump Like the one alone Long wait times to see living together as a couple. But apart Hiding in dense woods. And under the shade of trees. But the bird cried like a whistling territory declared out periodic bleep "Odd that - the - odd expect", often perched on a tree branch near a water source. I do not like the island is dominated by water birds such as the kingfisher species.
Food: Insects such a big (beetles, grasshoppers), crabs, worms, snails, lizards, frogs, small fish, tadpoles and fish.
In the forest-steppe habitat, mangroves and estuaries.
