WOODLANDS KINGFISHER – Halcyon senegalensis – BOSVELDVISVANGER

Common summer resident. Differs from Mangrove Kingfisher in having a red and black bill, and black patch from ear to bill. Immature usually has all-red bill.
Male calls continuously after arrival and until breeding is finished, a loud
‘yimp-trrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr’ the last part drawn out and decending.
Present October to April, occasionally later in mixed bushveld and riverine or swamp fringing woodland, singly or in pairs. Catches insect on the ground by still-hunting from a perch. Pairs greet each other with spread wings. 23-4cm
