This male kingfisher is around the house for about 5 months now. He's in love with a female and courtship is going on right now. When he comes at the fishing spot I can already hear him tsjirping, then he is quiet, concentrating on the fish beneath him. Within a second he's back at his post, when his catch was succesful, he tsjirps a couple of time, like he's celebrating his catch. For me a dream come true after 30 years to be able to be a part of their life.
