Watching Sacred Kingfishers at this time of year is value for money. As the nestlings mature, the adults bring food to the nest on a regular basis – visits are rarely more than five minutes apart during the morning feeding period. Typically the parents announce their arrival with a series of harsh, scolding calls from a nearby perch, eliciting a begging response from the youngsters. Often the adults will make a series of visits with the same prey item. If it’s large this enables the nestlings to tear off portions … I reckon it gets pretty willing at times inside the nest!
