Did you know:

Grey Headed Kingfisher birds (image above) come from the family of Kingfishers that are small to medium sized brightly colored birds. They are fairly common in wooded areas, often near water. Despite the name, the grey-headed kingfisher does not feed on fish, but instead thrives on a  variety of insects, such as grasshoppers, cockroaches and beetles, and occasionally takes small lizards.
Like other kingfishers, this specy generally sits still on a perch, before diving steeply down to the ground in pursuit of prey.
The nest, which is excavated by both sexes, consists of a tunnel up to a metre long, dug into a riverbank, gully or termite mound.
Egg-laying occurs between September and December, with three to four eggs incubated by both parent birds for around 20 days
