Happy return of Little Kingfisher


Happy return for 2012 of Little Kingfisher (Ceyx pusilla) in Tyto today.


Not total happiness, however, as bird had issues with something it ate.


Much avian coughing and head shaking ensued before snack was redespatched innardly, inwardly if you prefer.


Eventually all was well. Welcome back, you little beaut.

Lovely bird and interesting sequence, Tony.
I cannot make out what it was having trouble getting "down the hatch".
It would be interesting to know.
Cheers
Denis

What delightful photos Tony - such gorgeous little birds, like flying jewels. We're always thrilled to see one.
