A pretty common kingfisher throughout most parts of Sub – saharan Africa. Only black and white kingfisher in Africa.
This one is a female and only varies from female by a double band on the breast, being the male. Interestingly, I read somewhere once that they have helpers when breeding and a scarcity of food occurs. Helpers usually, offspring or non-breeding individuals, increase as the food becomes less. Wonderful how nature works.Previous birding post:
