[Ligne directrice - Note] Note du photographe
The Brown-hooded Kingfisher , Halcyon albiventris, is common in the eastern half of southern Africa, mainly living in woodland habitats, as well as heavily wooded gardens and parks.

It has a broad and varied diet, eating a wide variety of animals, rarely eating fish. Both sexes excavate the nest, which is a burrow, normally dug into the walls of gullies.

It lays 2-5, rarely 6 eggs, which are incubated solely by the female, for about 14 days. Very little is known about the young. It seems that they are fed mainly fed by the female, and they are fed by their parents after fledging.

Hello Peter,
What a fantastic photo you have captured of the Brown-hooded Kingfisher. Amazing detail and gorgeous contrasting colors. I love the composition and the bright blurred BG is great. It reminds a lot of the Grey-headed Kingfisher I saw while in Tanzania.
