Kingfishers nest in burrow-like nests dug into the banks of rivers, lakes and quarries. Around Easter time kingfishers lay their first clutch of 6-7 eggs with 2-3 broods often raised in a single breeding season. There are over 90 species of kingfisher globally.
Kingfishers catch their fish blind. Once they have spotted their prey they remember its location and dive into the water beak first with their third eyelid closed.
