Artist's Description

I found this beautiful little Forest Kingfisher on my trip to Darwin in the Northern Territory Australia.

The forest kingfisher hunts invertebrates, such as bugs, beetles, grasshoppers, spiders, and worms, as well as small frogs and lizards. It often kills prey by hitting it against a branch after seizing it.

Breeding season is October to January in Australia with one brood raised. The nest is a short burrow into a round chamber within an arboreal termite nest, around 10–12 m (33–39 ft) above the ground. Three to six white shiny eggs are laid, measuring 25 mm x 22 mm. Fledglings are fed for around a month before they leave the nest.

This is for all the wildlife lovers like me who appreciated beautiful nature. This is for you.
