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

I was born and still live in Africa.
Live a life close to nature, where I get the inspiration to do what I love most…., “Photography”.
Where I live and what I do is my destiny. I am grateful for the privilege
