On a game drive at Pumba Game Reserve near Port Elizabeth our ranger pointed out a Brown-hooded Kingfisher sitting in a tree next to the game drive vehicle. The next thing he said kinda got our attention. He asked us to look around and see if we could see any body of water. There was none. The Brown-hooded Kingfisher doesn’t necessarily feed on fish but also on insects such as butterflies, bees, wasps, locusts and ants. These invertebrates are usually hawked aerially, killed and then eaten. This means that it doesn’t have to live near water like all his other Kingfisher cousins.
