Behavior

Belted Kingfishers pay abundant of their time perked alone on the sides of streams, lakes, and estuaries, sorting out little fish. They additionally fly quickly up and down rivers and shorelines giving loud rattling calls. They hunt either by plunging directly from a perch, or by hovering over the water, bill downward, before diving when a fish they’ve noticed
