The White-throated Kingfisher is a large species of tree kingfisher that lives across southern parts of Asia and far eastern Europe. They feed on large insects, frogs, toads, and, of course, fish.
White-throated Kingfishers have a distinctive plumage consisting of bright blue feathers along the back and tail, dark chestnut on the flanks and head, and white at the throat and belly. Males and females have similar coloration, though females tend to be a bit duller. White-throated Kingfishers are also known as White-breasted Kingfishers or Smyrna Kingfishers.
The population trend for the White-throated Kingfisher is increasing, and the conservation status is Least Concern as of September 2014.
