Well that's a Kingfisher but that doesn't start with an "H"...
Neither does the scientific name start with an "H" as it's Alcedo atthis.

Maybe you're referring to the plant then?

Nope. I said think Lyrically. You're on the right track. The Scientific name is actually a clue as well.
I'll puit up another picture of a different species.

Ooh I always feel bad when people don't get them.

No that's another species of King fisher and it belongs to a different family than my first pic, but both families have echoes of the word I'm looking for which is a lyrical name for the Kingfisher.

I think he's going for Halcyon.  Source of the phrase "Halcyon days."

And if I may be so bold as to assume I am correct.

Aw, I don't want to be responsible for murdering this thread.

HINT: It's a scene from a *very* campy '80s horror film.

For some reason, a memory stirs and tells me this is "Night of the Creeps."

Eh??

Cool, so the last image was: "Night of the Creeps."

Here's my next image:
