Watercolor Birds #33: Belted Kingfisher

I had no idea there was only one common species of kingfisher in the US! In addition, this bird seems unusual to me because the females have more colors than the males: the males lack the reddish-brown bands on the underside. Also, there's a little heart-shaped white spot on this bird, on both males and females, which is pretty cool.

I made the beak pointing straight ahead, when it's supposed to go a little down. Again, not paying enough attention at the drawing stage... But I'm pretty pleased with the way the stump she's resting on came out, for a change.
