Juveniles have rusty feathers in their breast bands. The Birds of North America account for Belted Kingfisher contains this description for juveniles:

Compared to adults, juveniles (birds in Juvenile plumage) have a darker crest, more white in the wing coverts, larger white tips on secondaries, and white spots on the central pair of rectrices (like adult females), and more cinnamon or brown color in their slaty breast band (Ridgway 1914b<https://birdsna-org.ezproxy2.library.colostate.edu/Species-Account/bna/species/belkin1/references#REF11704>).

(As an aside, the BNA account's first author is Jeff Kelly, whose PhD work on Belted Kingfishers was done here at CSU.)

Multiple photos in Cornell's Macaulay Library show birds with similar rusty pectoral bands: https://search.macaulaylibrary.org/catalog?taxonCode=belkin1&mediaType=Photo&sort=rating_desc&__hstc=26441058.ab8f706b79b79fc3e5185ffe2a8f0092.1540436527033.1540436527033.1540436527033.1&__hssc=26441058.8.1540436527035&__hsfp=548646774

We did not notice anything about unusual size at the time. The calls sounded typical for Belted.
