Thanks rj. I am very much around, outside the boundary silently admiring all the beautiful photos posted here. Will try to participate more from now on.

Sreeraj, thanks for the comment. Nice to hear it from an expert in birding.

Thanks Redrage,

I thought the kingfisher's would be present where fishes are there, No?? Here in Jaipur we hardly have any water left. leave alone fishes, hence I asked.

The KF species mainly hunts large crustaceans, insects, earthworms, rodents, snakes, frogs apart from fishes as well. Its a highly versatile bird and there are cases where it has predated on smaller birds as well.

KF one of my fav birds
