During courtship, the male feeds the female, and then the pair may choose a nest site… together along a bank, safe from flooding. Kingfishers keep clean by diving into water and preening their feathers in the sun to dry. They have excellent vision and hunt by waiting for fish to swim into view. The bird darts out and dives to snatch up the fish, then returns to its perch. The kingfisher beats its catch against its perch to break the bones for easier swallowing. It then balances the fish in its beak and swallows the fish headfirst. Show More
