White-throated kingfisher

White-throated (or white-breasted) kingfishers, common in India’s national parks.  I would hesitate to describe a kingfisher as a predator but apart from the obvious diet of fish and insects, one of these birds has taken a huge mouthful of animal, which even our naturalists were unable to identify.
