What a New Year's present! Gonzalo photographed this Green Kingfisher male on 31st of December. It stood in a Sapium haematospermum behind the water tank at the Viamonte Access. Kingfishers feed mainly on fish which they hunt from a perch. As they observe the prey, they swoop to catch it and return to the perch. So they have a close relationship with water though they are not considered waterbirds. And the best of all is that it was photographed today as well (January, 7th). Now it has an adequate envrironment to live in.
