So, I happen to go outside today and see a bird, looks a lot like this one. Was amazed at how close it stayed to me. I've never pinned birds, not a fan, but here it was this afternoon...wow...I think it was a Kingfisher

The Common Kingfisher (Alcedo atthis) also known as Eurasian Kingfisher or River Kingfisher, is a small kingfisher with seven subspecies recognized within its wide distribution across Eurasia and North Africa. This sparrow-sized bird has the typical short-tailed, large-headed kingfisher profile. It feeds mainly on fish, caught by diving, and has special visual adaptions to enable it to see prey under water. The glossy white eggs are laid in a nest at the end of a burrow in a riverbank.
