The Cerulean Kingfisher (Alcedo coerulescens) is a River Kingfisher found in Indonesia.

It is sometimes referred to as the Small Blue Kingfisher but in India and some other regions, this name is used for the Common Kingfisher (Alcedo atthis).



The plumage is mostly metallic blue with white underneath.

It looks similar to the Common Kingfisher, however, the Cerulean Kingfisher can be differentiated by the white underparts, which are orange in the Common Kingfisher.
