REVERSE DIMORPHISM - Sexually dimorphic plumage coloration is widespread in birds in which the male is brighter and has more striking feather features. It is the opposite in the Belted Kingfisher - as it is the female with the decorative brown belt (see below) - and the male has a plain white front. (top photo)

Oh I just love these birds!! They criss-cross the rivers we kayak to keep us company!

Such cute birds. These I have never seen, the downside of not living near water.
