  1. The following comment I have made repeatedly:

    "Just when I thought I had seen every kingfisher species, someone introduces yet another one"

    And I have to make it again, and what a species it is. Truly mind blowing! Promoted to the homepage. Impressive also how you immediately figured out the species system on the site. Welcome to JungleDragon.
