Kingfisher

A kingfisher is a small to medium sized bird that belongs to the kingfisher family.

There are 87 species of kingfisher that can be divided into three major groups.

Kingfishers can reach 4 to 18 inches in length and 0.33 to 16 ounces in weight. Kingfishers have excellent eyesight which makes it easier to see their prey.

Many young kingfishers drown shortly after leaving the nest due to lack of flying experience.

A kingfisher has a lifespan of 6 to 10 years.

I liked this bird because he is colourful.
