Sacred Kingfisher - Todiramphus Sanctus

The Sacred Kingfisher inhabits woodlands, mangroves and paperbark forests, tall open eucalypt and melaleuca forest.

They forage mainly on the land, only occasionally capturing prey in the water. They feed on crustaceans, reptiles, insects and their larvae and, infrequently, fish. These birds perch on low exposed branches on the lookout for prey. Once prey is located, the Sacred Kingfisher swoops down and grasps it in its bill, returning to the perch to eat it.

For most of the year Sacred Kingfishers are mainly solitary, pairing only for the breeding season. Usually two clutches are laid in a season. Both sexes excavate the nest, which is normally a burrow in a termite mound, hollow branch or river bank. The nest chamber is unlined and can be up to 20m above the ground. Both sexes incubate the eggs and care for the young.
