I watched two kingfishers
yesterday hover and swoop back and forth between the 4th and 5th avenue bridges. Kingfishers have a distinctive sound
and are quite fun to observe.
I have to give whoever wrote the Wikipedia entry on kingfishers credit for plain straight forward talk:
Kingfishers.......beat their prey to death, either by whipping it against a tree or by dropping it on a stone.
And here I thought kingfishers were "cute".
