Safari Sunday: A pied kingfisher fishing

Posted by barb on Apr 9, 2017 in Pictures, Recreation, Travels |

Our last camp, Nxamaseri, was on a river, and while our time there was not about game drives and seeing animals, we did get a chance to go out on the river our first evening there. Along the river we found hippos, crocodiles, and lots of birds.
We spied birds that seemed to hover in the air. It was the pied kingfisher, and they were hunting. They would hover over a spot on the river, watching for a fish or insect, then dive down.
