Kingfishers Courting

June 17, 2017

Well it looks like I missed the first brood fledge as the kingfishers were getting friendly again on the river this morning.

The female was sat on her usual perch when the male arrived with a freshly caught fish.

She ignored him for a short time before finally starting to show some interest.

He carefully presented the fish to her which she took , smacked on the branch to ensure it was dead and then maneuvered for swallowing.

 

Hopefully his attentions paid off and the second brood will be underway soon. Fabulous to witness and great to think that if everything goes well there'll soon be more kingfishers to enjoy watching.
