Beautiful and angry Kingfishers

August 17th, 2013

The start of this post features an adult female being pursued by a young male bird. She aggressively lets him know that she doesn't want him around. I thought that this was attempted courtship, but showing the images to Simon King he felt that the juvenile male probably thought the female had food. The rest of the images covers the various aspects of the kingfishers activities featuring several birds in different reserves.
