Right from the 1st day I moved it, I saw this bird. It was a brilliant flash of blue and made really bad noises.
This particular bird has a favourite spot on a particular tree in the secondary forest of my backyard. I have seen it perching there more than a few times. That was when this picture was taken.
After scouring (that’s a bit of an exaggeration) the pictures of kingfishers online, I finally found that this is the white throated kingfisher.
It is noteworthy that the pillar of my house is also another favourite perching spot of this kingfisher. That was where it was when it welcomed me to this new house the first day I moved in. At least I like to think that was what it was doing.:)
