Kingfisher

SPECIES:
The White-Breasted Kingfisher (Coraciiformes > Halcyon Smyrnensis)

DESCRIPTION:
The White-breasted Kingfisher is a tree kingfisher, widely distributed in Eurasia from Bulgaria,[3] Turkey, east through South Asia to the Philippines. This kingfisher is a resident over much of its range, although some populations may make short distance movements. It feeds on a wide range of prey that includes small reptiles, amphibians, crabs, small rodents and even birds.
This is a large kingfisher, 28 cm in length. The adult has a bright blue back, wings and tail. Its head, shoulders, flanks and lower belly are chestnut, and the throat and breast are white. The large bill and legs are bright red. The flight of the White-throated Kingfisher is rapid and direct, the short rounded wings whirring. In flight, large white patches are visible on the blue and black wings. Sexes are similar, but juveniles are a duller version of the adult.
 
LOCATION:
The Ranthambore National Park is one of the biggest and most renowned national parks in Northern India. It is located in southeastern Rajasthan, about 130 km from Jaipur and is spread over an area of 1,334 sq km along with the nearby Mansingh and Kaila Devi sanctuaries.
