On recent visits to a regular Sacred Kingfisher nesting site I’d failed to detect any clear signs of breeding. Like many nesting birds, kingfishers are quite secretive during the incubation phase. This morning however, I could hear the tell-tale calls of begging young in the nest tunnel, and it wasn’t long before both adults arrived with meals. One of the parents had cleverly captured a large Psaltoda cicada – it proved quite a handful and the adult kingfisher made a number of rapid visits before successfully delivering morning tea!
