This is a Kingfisher though not 100% sure of the type of Kingfisher (there are many).  I don't believe it is a Belted Kingfisher which are the only type found n the U.S.  You may want to check out whatbird.com for a positive ID.
Thanks

Here's an American Kestrel (falcon type bird not as large as a hawk however).  Also taken at the Irvine, CA Wildlife Sanctuary.  It's an area where there are several ponds, creeks and loads of dirt path walkways, etc.  This Kestrel was difficult to capture.  I was unable to get close.  As soon as he saw me aim the 400mm lens he took off.  Fortunately I was able to snap a few before he fled.  Luckily he returned a few times within my two hour session there.

Wow...great shot!!  Probably the longest time I've spent in CR just staring at what is happening in the picture.
