Buff-breasted Paradise-Kingfisher (Tanysiptera silvia). Image captured the day after my previous post, but in the same location. Almost certainly the same male individual, different rig.

ISO16000, 600mm, f5.6, 1/320, on A1.

Really nice presentation.  Love the long tail and the nice blues of the feathers.
