The Great Blue Kingfisher is the largest kingfisher in the genus Alcedo. Named for Edward Blyth, the species has also been known as Alcedo grandis and as the great blue kingfisher. The species breeds between the months of March and June. It builds nests at the end of tunnels dug in the banks of streams or ravines. A shy bird, it frequents small waterways, feeding on fish and insects caught by diving from a shrub close to the water. The species ranges from Nepal through India, Bangladesh, Bhutan, China, Myanmar, Thailand, Laos, and Vietnam. Even within its preferred habitat the density of the species is low, and the population, though not thoroughly surveyed, is believed to be small, and declining further.
