This Philippine kingfisher is very colorful: dark purple-blue crown and mustache; red dagger-shaped beak; red feet; brown-spotted blue-wings; blue tail; and burnt orange throat and belly. It has a melancholy whistle.

Some painting tips: Use metallic textile paints for the birds’ prurple-blue crown and mustache, and blue wings and tail.
