Here’s the male…..





These Kingfishers nest in a burrow dug into the river bank that’s 1-2 meters deep laying 2-3 pure white eggs in a nest chamber at the end. I have often wondered if the entire lizard is fed to one chick or carved up by an adult and distributed to all? Fish seem to provide only 10-20% of the chick’s diet as over two days of observing them the vast majority of meals were lizards, amphibians and frogs.
