They are one of the smallest kingfishers in the world. Roughly the size of a mid-sized hummingbird.
Male and female. This is probably shortly after mating, during nest-building. They nest in a hole that they dig in a vertical mud wall, in dark, covered river/stream beds. Thus, the bits of mud on their beaks. Incubation and feeding are done by both parents.
