Confusing Collared Kingfishers

10,000 Birds

Sometimes, however, the God of Birding gets bored of tormenting birders in this way (if I learnt one thing from reading about the gods of old it is that they have the attention spans of kittens on espresso) and instead throw in a group of birds, many of which look quite different, but make them all the same species. Almost six thousands kilometres away, on Tutuila in American Samoa, there is another population of mostly white-headed Collared Kingfishers.
