Sri Lankan kingfishers

Kingfishers of Sri Lanka, including a long shot of the large stork-billed kingfisher, the common kingfisher and the lesser pied kingfisher.  Also, the white-throated kingfisher which is similar in appearance, call and behaviour to the woodland kingfisher found in Africa.  Both tend to favour invertebrates found in woodland rather than fish.  In fact, check out the white-throated kingfisher in the greenery and you’ll see he’s got his eye on a nice fat dragonfly.
