"Ruddy Kingfishers inhabit forested areas from the temperate to tropical zones, often in thick jungles and rainforests.
Like other kingfishers, Ruddy Kingfishers generally feed on fish, crustaceans, and large insects, though in areas with less running water, they are known to take frogs and other amphibians. Due to its preference for heavily forested areas, the kingfisher's high, descending call is more often heard than the bird itself is seen, and these birds generally travel singly or in pairs."
I was very fortunate to shoot this rare gem. As with all the other kingfishers, this fella's colors is not a let down. Amazing hues on its feathers.
