Kingfisher facts:

Did you know that Kingfishers eat mainly fish, but they also take aquatic insects, freshwater shrimps and tadpoles. They close their eyes as they dive into the water, so they are fishing blind! They bob their heads before diving to accurately judge the depth of the fish. Kingfisher courtship occurs in spring. The male will approach the female with a fish in his beak. He will hold it so that the head of the fish is facing outwards and attempt to feed it to the female. If he is unsuccessful he will simply eat the fish himself. He may have to repeat this feeding behavior for some time before mating occurs. A kingfisher pair dig a nest tunnel in vertical, sandy river banks. The nest chamber at the end has a slight depression to prevent eggs rolling out, but no material is brought into the nest.

The Scientific Name is Alcedinidae. The most common kingfisher can be 17 to 19 centimeters in length, with a weight between 34 to 46 grams and can have a wingspan of 25 centimeters.
