An un-Common Kingfisher

When folks suggested that I make a Kingfisher, I had to look it up because I wasn’t familiar with the bird. A Google search delivered this darling bird. Only when I finished him and looked up more information about Kingfishers did I realize that this little guy is a Common Kingfisher and not found in the United States. So my friends in the UK, this one’s for you!
