Pictures of blue-breasted kingfishers (Halcyon malimbica), from tropical West Africa.

Unlike the divign kingfishers of North America, these birds take insects and small vertebrate prey on the ground or at the water's edge. They inhabit tropical and subtropical mangrove forests and adjacent habitat.
