Malekite King Fisher


“Kingfishers are a group of small to medium-sized, brightly colored birds in the order Coraciiformes.
There are roughly 90 different species of kingfisher in the world. The majority of species are found in Asia, Africa, Australia, and South America; some species in Europe and North America.
The dagger-shaped bill often seems too long or too big for the rest of the bird, but it is well designed for capturing food. The smallest species of kingfisher is the African pygmy kingfisher (Ispidina lecontei), which is around 10 centimeters (3.9 inches) long and weight from 9 to 12 grams (0.3 to 0.4 ounces).”
