The Sacred kingfisher
Sacred Kingfishers are a member of a species that spans the globe. This particular variant can grow in the range of 190 – 230 mm or so. Both birds are similar in colour, unlike some of the more exotic species of birds where the male is a spectacular individual. Sacred Kingfishers are fond of areas where there is a water course, weather this is a vast river system, small creek a fresh water or estuarine lake and or river system and they can also be seen on local beaches that have some form of tree cover where they may be seen carrying on there regular short sorties of swooping for insects or Lizards in the ground cover or dive bombing the water for small fish or other crustacean.
