Looks good for Green Kingfisher

 

The culmen of this bird is really curved and the bill is relatively thick. Looks better for an immature Amazon Kingfisher in my opinion.

@eatthegoodoftheland, about how big was the kingfisher? 8 inches long (Green) or 12 inches long (Amazon)?

IMO...Bill looks well in range for a Green and the white spotting on the wing also supports Green.

Size would be the real proof... @eatthegoodoftheland, are you familiar with the Belted Kingfisher? if it was significantly smaller than it is a Green. close to the same size as Belted, then it is a Amazon.

thank you for the input. i work for a bird photographer so i did not see this bird in person. part of my job is helping him accurately identify them.
