Pied vs Crested Kingfisher

Postby aalmarufrussell » 03 Aug 2013, 20:47

This is very confusing to identify Pied and Crested Kingfisher on the field.
Is there any easy solution to identify Crested Kingfisher and Pied kingfisher (apart from size)???? :idea:

Crest is not enough? So far I remember black/white combination is little bit different than pied kingfisher.

Need to compare them deeply...

Found the following information on web. This might be helpful.
"Crested kingfishers, unlike pied kingfishers, have a pink brown lining on the wings instead of a white lining. They are also much larger than pied kingfishers. (Fry and Fry, 1992)"
"I just couldn't resist shooting nature. Every moment is unique there."

And crest is large enough to identify, I've checked today via a photo.
