On a recent visit to Amsterdam, I saw this 1887 painting in the Van Gogh Museum.

Hint: It's called "Kingfisher by the Waterside."   But what kind?

I think the more you know about a work of art, the better.

Was there a reason that Van Gogh chose this species of bird? It would be helpful to know what species it is before speculating.
