The Blue-eared Kingfisher (Alcedo meninting) is found mainly in dense shaded forests where it hunts in small streams. It is darker crowned, with darker rufous underparts and lacking the rufous ear stripe of the Common Kingfisher (Alcedo atthis) which is found in more open habitats. A number of subspecies have been described that differ in measurement and color shade. Adult males have an all dark bill while females have a reddish lower mandible.

This picture was taken at Lower Pierce Reservoir back dated to Lunar New Year.
