White Breasted Kingfisher

Halcyon smyrnensis 8-9-19

A few white breasted kingfishers have been hanging around a fishing cove in Tseung Kwan O in the mornings for the past few weeks, making for some very productive shooting.

I spotted this lovely on the trail up to the Mt. Davis youth hostel. It was perched on a tree that had fallen down and partially blocked the trail and I nearly scared it off as I walked up and didn’t notice it. Luckily though, I was able to approach quietly enough to get a very clear shot from the trail.
