ć‹?ĺˆ°ć­¤ĺ˝ąĺƒ?ďźŒĺŻŚĺ?ƒčź‰é›Łé€˘ďźŒçŽ—ć˜Żĺš¸é ‹ă€‚ This kingfisher may be regurgitating, but it is not sick. It is ridding itself of food that it cannot digest in the form of a “pelletâ€?. Kingfishers are usually seen hunting for fish and shrimp along the edges of water. Like other bird species, they swallow their meals whole and the indigestible parts are then compressed into “pelletsâ€?, which are regurgitated. The pellet might look hard, but a single touch can shatter it, revealing identifiable bones and scales. The pellet is usually dropped into the water and seldom found. I was lucky enough to find this pellet and capture this golden moment.
