Pied Kingfishers make brilliant photographs and videos as they are very active and normally perform long enough to shoot lots of photos showing catches and interaction with other birds. Pied Kingfishers hover in the air above the water when they spot their prey. When they can see it clearly, they dive into the water to pierce the fish with its very sharp bill. After a catch, the Kingfisher will hit the small fish on a branch several times before it attempts to swallow it whole. Kingfishers normally succeed in swallowing the fish, unless it is stolen by another bird or falls into the water.
