Common Kingfisher Alcedo atthis
There are around a 80 species of kingfishers found all around the world. Kingfishers have large heads and long, sharp, pointed bills. Most of the Kingfishers are brightly colored.
I have seen an photographed all Kingfisher species of Australia and have decided to present my shots of the Common Kingfisher in this album. Some species do consume primarily fish, for instance the only Kingfisher native to Germany, the Common Kingfisher, but most species have diets that include significant number of insects.
