This bird also has a black flecked breast that is occasionally combined with rufous.

The huge shaggy crest on the head separates it from the similarly black and white Pied Kingfisher.

The female of the species resembles the male almost identically.

Despite the fact that she lacks the rufous tones that the male occasionally exhibits.

This species is endemic to southern Asia, ranging eastward from the Indian Subcontinent to Japan.

The Crested Kingfisher is often found in the highlands and foothills of its home range.

It is located around small and bigger rivers, where it hunts for fish and crayfish.

They can be found perched on overhangs, branches, and partially submerged logs.

During the mating season, both sexes dig a tunnel into a vertical bank in a wooded region with their beaks and feet.

The female lays and incubates anywhere from 4 to 7 eggs.

When chicks hatch, both parents feed them until they are completely fledged at roughly 40 days old.

While the population of this species is constant in certain areas, there has been a notable reduction in northeastern China.

This reduction is directly related to habitat deterioration.
