Sparkly Bird of Wonder

This beautiful lil bird keeps flying into our lives....in the past 2 and half weeks it has come visiting twice and will sit happily on our front table until picked up, where it remains calm as. It's very tame so I'm not sure if it's been previously kept in captivity but we set it free both times but it still seems to want to hang around...since about 8 out 10 houses in my area keep birds in teeny weeny cages I'm hoping this one remains free to roam...splendiferous! It's called a Nok Pang Ga in southern Thailand ..I believe it's a species of kingfisher. Gorgeouso!

job says you have to feed it or it will die!! It was obviously kept by someone so it may not know how to feed itself and is probably looking for food. He says to feed it fresh water fish.
