In the order of Coraciiformes Belize has a family of Kingfishers called Alcedinidae and in this family is Megaceryle alcyon or the Belted Kingfisher - a fish-eating bird that dives from a perched position over water for sardines and other small fish.
With its short thick neck, large head and wacky, swept-back hairdo, this bird looks remarkably like fight promoter Don King!

The Publisher/Lithographer will go with this size.
I hope Don doesn't sue
