Kingfisher in the City

Extinct birds are a common siting at home/ in the village, like this afternoon, my mom saw this kingfisher of the collared type belonging to the tree kingfishers. Mostly they are called Mangrove Kingfisher or White-Collared Kingfishers. Maybe this one got lost from Australia ~ know why, here at Wikipedia.
Pardon for the blurry picture, it was on a branch of a
knocked off tree on our backyard, plus it was a misty day.
Among the common birds you can see here are Hornbills, yeah, you thought they're only seen in zoos and Palawan, well we have it here. We're like 'the rain forest village'. Hornbills are scary, but they look majestic.
