''Ladies have babies'' (around the tummy area)
''Guys wear ties ''(around the neck )
THAT is an easy way to remember the difference between the female and male giant kingfisher
The female has the brown patch on her tummy area  -
The male giant kingfisher has the brown around his neck area

Pied Kingfisher

To distinguish the male from the female - the female looks as if she is "wearing a bikini top or bra", the male has an extra black stripe below the ''bra'' that the female doesn't have.

That is the only easy way to remember the male from the female.
