Stork-billed Kingfisher

Latin Name : Pelargopsis capensis

Site Name : Kuala Balai Rd

Photographer : VIS, Hans

Date : 2009-09-05

Notes : Borneo Stork-billed Kingfishers typically have pale yellow heads compared with the brownish caps of Singapore and Malayan birds. However some of these kingfishers have a variable amount of grey/brown on the head. It is not yet known if this is age/sex related or differs in different areas of Borneo.Photo made by Axel Hartman.
