Black-backed Kingfisher,Ceyx erythacus, is probably one of the most beautiful kingfishers seen in Thailand.This lovely bird can be found from India to Southeast Asia and South China.It’s a very small kingfisher,not more than 14 cm large.It inhabits in densely shade areas near small streams and pools in broadleaved evergreen forest,sometimes gardens and mangroves on migration,up to 915 m.

I took this video in Kaeng Krachan above a small stream before stream crossing 1, near Bang Krang Campsite.This is a shady area  with some low trees and bamboo beside the stream.The bird was going and coming back to the nest to feed their chicks.
