Todies Kingfishers Hoopoes and Relatives: Coraciiformes - Kingfishers, Todies, Hoopoes, Relatives, And People

malaysia birds

People generally enjoy the colorful appearance of coraciiforms. In fact, the area of Sarawak (in north-central Malaysia) is known as "The Land of the Hornbill" and the state of Sabah (in northeast Malaysia) has a kingfisher on its national coat of arms. However, with the continued unrestricted spread of human development into their habitats, the birds continue to be threatened in their abilities to live freely in their natural environments. For the most part, when they have a large geographical range, the birds are commonly seen and not adversely affected by the presence of people.
