The rufous-backed kingfisher (Ceyx rufidorsa) is a species of bird in the Alcedinidae family. It is found in Brunei, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, and Thailand in tropical lowland forests near lakeshores and streamsides. The small bird is solitary and hunts from a low perch over the water by diving for insects and frogs. It is sometimes considered a subspecies of the Oriental dwarf kingfisher.

Thank you jeff and No Good.

Our guide Erwin did not mention any nest. If you want this bird you should make travel arrangements now. There are 3 KF there that are endemics and many other endemics at the two sites I visited.
