P1000: Kingfishers at Jingchuan Park episode 3
6

P1000 in action

This time, logically I ushered my P1000 (and a tripod) to the park to pay my respect to the kingfishers, the kings of bird beauty.

About kingfisher colors and genders

In the previous episode I mistakenly thought I could use GIMP's auto white balance command to restore a kingfisher's true colors and determine its gender accordingly (blue back = male and green back = female). I was wrong. According to Wikipedia, the male kingfisher has a black bill while the female has an orange-red mandible. Kingfisher gender is not determined by feather colors.
