Previous Black-Capped And White-Throated Kingfishers
46 of 115 from Hong Kong 11

Halcyon pileata (Black-capped Kingfisher), Halcyon smyrnensis (White-throated Kingfisher)

I was really thrilled to get two species of Kingfishers in the same shot. There is a bit of bridge here on the mud flat and the birds use the posts to look over the water in a stream below.
