Banded Kingfisher, Lacedo pulchella, Pekaka Rimba

This species can be found in the lowland tropical forests of Myanmar, Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, Laos. Malaysia, Sumatra, Java and Brunei, extinct in Singapore. This is adult female, with black-and-rufous-banded upperparts, and white underparts with some black bars on the chest and flanks. This is a bird of lowland rainforest found up to 1700 m, but normally below 1100 m altitude in the rest of its range. Unlike most kingfishers, it does not need pools or streams in its territory. The nest is a hole in a rotting tree trunk, or sometimes in the spherical nest of tree termites. The banded kingfisher hunts large insects and occasionally small lizards, usually taken in the trees, but sometimes from the ground.

Pekaka saya yang ke 11, lifer 206. Sememangnya sudah lama saya mencari spesis ini, setiap kali masuk ke kawasan hutan memang inilah yang berada dalam ‘wishlist’. Merupakan sejenis pekaka yang hanya didapati di kawasan berhutan. Ia tidak memerlukan kawasan berair untuk memburu, sebaliknya kerap memburu mangsa diatas pokok seperti reptilia kecil dan serangga. Hanya kadang kadang ia turun menyambar mangsa di atas tanah.

When having a walk through the jungle, we spotted this beautiful coloured male Banded Kingfisher (Lacedo pulchella). Its native is the lowland rainforest and he does not live near water. Instead of fish, they feed on large insects and occasionally small lizards.

 

I saw only one Banded Kingfisher during our stay and it was hard to get a sharp image. It was pretty dark inside the forest so there's a little motion blur here unfortunately.

Banded Kingfisher (Male)

 

The banded kingfisher (Lacedo pulchella) is a tree kingfisher found in lowland tropical forests of southeast Asia. It is the only member of the genus Lacedo. Male and female adults are very different in plumage. The male has a bright blue crown with black and blue banding on the back. The female has rufous and black banding on the head and upperparts.

 

The first formal description of the species was by the American naturalist Thomas Horsfield in 1821 under the binomial name Dacelo pulchella. The current genus Lacedo was introduced by the German ornithologist Ludwig Reichenbach in 1851. The word Lacedo is an anagram of Alcedo, the Latin word for kingfisher. The specific name pulchella is Latin for "very pretty".

 

There are three subspecies:

 

L. p. pulchella, the nominate race, breeds in Malaysia south of 7°N and on the islands of Sumatra and Java.

L. p. amabilis breeds from northern Malaysia northwards. It is slightly larger than the nominate form. The male has a blue nape, and the female is more rufous than pulchella.

L. p. melanops breeds in Brunei. The male has a black forehead, cheeks and nape.

 

The banded kingfisher is a 20 cm (7.9 in) long with a sturdy red bill and a short crest which is slowly raised and lowered. It shows striking sexual dimorphism compared to most of its relatives. The adult male has a chestnut forehead, cheeks and nape, and a bright blue cap. The rest of the upperparts, wings and tail are black with blue bands. The breast, flanks and undertail are rufous, and the central belly is white.

 

The adult female is equally striking, with black-and-rufous-banded upperparts, and white underparts with some black bars on the chest and flanks. Young birds are duller than the adult of the same sex, have a brown and orange bill, and dusky barring on the underparts.

 

The call is a long whistled wheeeoo followed by 15 repetitions of chiwiu in 17 seconds, the second syllable gradually fading away. The banded kingfisher will respond to imitations of its call.

 

The species occurs in Myanmar, Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, Laos, Malaysia, Sumatra, Java and Brunei. It is extinct in Singapore.

 

This is a bird of lowland rainforest found up to 1,700 m in Brunei, but normally below 1100 m altitude in the rest of its range. Unlike most kingfishers, it does not need pools or streams in its territory.

 

The nest is a hole in a rotting tree trunk, or sometimes in the spherical nest of tree termites. Two to five white eggs are laid. In Thailand the eggs are laid between February and May.

 

The banded kingfisher hunts large insects and occasionally small lizards, usually taken in the trees, but sometimes from the ground.

 

This species is uncommon but widespread in much of its range. It is rare in Java, very rare in Sumatra and extinct in Singapore.

Pekaka saya yang ke 11, lifer 206. Sememangnya sudah lama saya mencari spesis ini, setiap kali masuk ke kawasan hutan memang inilah yang berada dalam ‘wishlist’. Jadi apabila dia muncul hari tu, walaupun betina sahaja, tetap puas hati mendapat lifer. Merupakan sejenis pekaka yang hanya didapati di kawasan berhutan. Ia tidak memerlukan kawasan berair untuk memburu, sebaliknya kerap memburu mangsa diatas pokok seperti reptilia kecil dan serangga. Hanya kadang kadang ia turun menyambar mangsa di atas tanah.
