The White-throated Kingfisher (Halcyon smyrnensis) also known as the White-breasted Kingfisher or Smyrna Kingfisher, is a tree kingfisher, widely distributed in Eurasia from Bulgaria, Turkey, West Asia east through the Indian Subcontinent to the Philippines.

This kingfisher is a resident over much of its range, although some populations may make short distance movements. It can often be found well away from water where it feeds on a wide range of prey that includes small reptiles, amphibians, crabs, small rodents and even birds. During the breeding season they call loudly in the mornings from prominent perches including the tops of buildings in urban areas or on wires.

Hello Foozi,

You're capturing well this birf by an excellent collage and fine tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see various postures of kingfisher which is stopping on sprig. In particular, the photograph which is holding the earthworm to the mouth of the central lower berth is interesting.

Kind regards,

Hello Foozi
