Kingfishers

There are about 90 species of kingfishers. They are found primarily in the tropics although the belted kingfisher comes to North Dakota and parts further north each year. Many kingfishers live near water and feed on small fish but many others live far away from water and feed on small invertebrates. They all have large heads, long strong bills, short legs and tails and most are brightly colored.
