This animal, as you can see, is called a kingfisher. This bird is the king of fishers as you know. They fly fast and low over water, and hunt fish from riverside perches. They need to eat lots of fish each day. When they catch a stickleback, they take them back to their perch and hit them to kill them before eating them. This is so their spines don’t hurt thier throats. When kingfishers dive in the water they close their eyes and open their beaks. Kingfishers can have many colours.
