      What in the world are you? Not a Megapode. Doesn't look like a Kingfisher. How about a PItta?

      Oh well, when in doubt I call everything Lalage atrovirens leucoptera ( Black-browed Triller) - adult male. Could it be him?

      Sounds like you have been playing "Where in the world is Carmen Sandiago" with your kids. Thanks for ID, accurate as usual

      Actually, just play games with myself sometimes to avoid that vetting the ID's becomes too tedious. A little mindless levity often helps...

      Another great shot
