A Collared Kingfisher flips its prey
Amidst the pollution along the coast of Manila Bay, many species of wild birds try to survive. This kingfisher had just caught a small fish and perched on a rock to enjoy its meal. When the bird flipped its prey for easier swallowing, I let go of a long 10 fps burst with my 1D MIV to catch the decisive moment.
Collared Kingfisher (Todiramphus chloris, resident)
Habitat – Coastal areas to open country, seldom in forest.
