White-throated Kingfisher – Urban Jewel

“Visited some of the sites near my home where mal-development has not yet destroyed all of nature. Never tire of watching common birds as they surprise me with their beauty.

‘White-throated Kingfisher (Halcyon smyrnensis) (young adult) with a beetle prey. Took a long time to process it (repeated toss & re-capture, shaking beak, rubbing on wood, etc) before swallowing.”
