It has a brownish head with black streaks, beautiful turquoise wings and a completely red bill. The male has a black back whereas the females and juveniles have brown backs. Below is a video I filmed of a pair of Kingfishers:
Brown Hooded Kingfisher Size:
It weighs around 50g to 75g and the size is about 20cm – 22cm.
Brown Hooded Kingfisher Diet:
Although it is a kingfisher the majority of its diet does not consist of fish! They usually forage on the ground, mainly feeding on insects, and occasionally eating scorpions, lizards, small rodents and fishes.
