Spotted a blue-eared kingfisher in our #TRLCMerisuli nursery! Almost identical to the common kingfisher, this species is distinguishable by the blue ear coverts, darker and more intense cobalt-blue upperparts with richer rufous under parts.

When it comes to conservation, we tend to look for the light that shines through the jungle to remind us of how divine our nature truly is.
