    Indigo-banded kingfisher (Ceyx cyanopectus)


    Indigo-banded kingfisher (Ceyx cyanopectus) by alabang, on Flickr

    The indigo-banded kingfisher (Ceyx cyanopectus) is a species of bird in the family Alcedinidae. It is endemic to the Philippines, where it is a generally uncommon but locally common resident of the northern and central islands. There are two subspecies, the nominate race, which occurs on Luzon, Polillo, Mindoro, Sibuyan and Ticao, and C. c. nigriostris, which is found in Panay, Negros and Cebu. It forms a superspecies with the southern silvery kingfisher of the southern Philippines.

    A local fish fry.

    I went back to photograph that bird again, but this time with a hide.

    Click this link then the photo inside the link to see the Photosphere.

    A Photosphere is a 360-degree panorama that lets you take immersive pictures with your phone, then share them online. You can pan and zoom, much like you can with the Google Street View feature we've all come to know on Google Maps.

    Only, these are our images.

    Sadly, it was a no show.

    Nice, I've got a blind too, but its more like a small tent enclosure, I really don't use it much, its kinda bulky to move around.
