The Kingfisher is a brightly coloured bird. Its head and wings are blue. Its chest and belly and bright orange. It has a long, sharp beak.



The Kingfisher feeds on small freshwater fish. It dives into the water and pierces them with its sharp beak to catch them.



Kingfishers are usually found near to fresh water like rivers, streams and lakes where they can find food easily.



Kingfishers build their nests in tunnels beside the banks of rivers. Kingfishers are hatched from eggs. Both the mother and father sit on the eggs to keep them warm. After they are hatched they usually spend about a month in the nest being fed by their parents before they leave.
