King Fisher.

King Fisher

King Fisher’s are usually found close to water but this one was spotted at the Araliya Bungalow in Walahanduwa. A Kingfisher will perch on a wire or a tree branch and wait patiently for hours till a worm, a small fish or a frog emerges from it’s hideout. Then he will dive in an a sudden blur of color and grab the victim before it has a chance to dive back into cover.
