Kingfishers

These birghtly colored birds have always fascinated me and there is never a dull moment watching them swoop down form their perch to catch prey! There are known to be 114 species of Kingfishers and almost all have bright plumage with a rather large bill. I was lucky to see one of the smallest, Oriental Dwarf Kingfisher, last year in Singapore measuring only 13cm!
