Name of this awesome singing Sri Lankan bird?? mp3 attached (1 Viewer)


New member
I'm super curious about the name of a bird I heard singing in Sri Lanka a few weeks ago. I heard it in the city Anuradhapura in the North of the country. As a musician I was really suprised about it's singing because it is such a clear melody, i love it! I recorded the bird with my Iphone and it is in the attachement.

Does anyone know which bird this is?
It seems like Birdnet does not recognize the bird... I asked it to the host of my guesthouse and he asked his friend who knows many birds. He said it was a Kingfisher but when i looked up the Kingfisher sound it is totally different.

Thanks a lot !!
