Spotted a pair of White-throated Kingfisher (Halcyon smyrnensis perpulchra) bathing in a pool of water. They would hover in the air and then plunge down into the puddle. One would stand guard while the other enjoyed itself. From the condition of the bill of one bird, I suspect they have been engaging in nest building, hence the reason to be together.
