If you hear a raucous call that is distinct like a laughter or see a flash of blue dart past you, chances are that a White-collared Kingfisher is in the vicinity. This bird is fairly common in parks, gardens and coastal areas. Wherever there are water bodies, you may chance upon one on a rock or tree branch nearby. It feasts on not just fish, but also crustaceans, insects, lizards, and even frogs. The kingfisher was featured on the old Singapore $10 notes, CashCards, as well as five local stamp series.
