Common or Eurasian Kingfisher – Signed Fine Art Print


Information about the Common Kingfisher:

The Common or Eurasian Kingfisher is a widely distributed bird native to Europe, Asia, and North Africa, mainly south of 60°N. It is a common breeding species over much of its vast Eurasian range, but in North Africa it is mainly a winter visitor, although it is a scarce breeding resident in coastal Morocco and Tunisia. In temperate regions, this kingfisher inhabits clear, slow-flowing streams and rivers, and lakes with well-vegetated banks. It frequents scrubs and bushes with overhanging branches close to shallow open water in which it hunts. In winter it is more coastal, often feeding in estuaries or harbors and along rocky seashores. Tropical populations are found by slow-flowing rivers, in mangrove creeks and in swamps.

Kingfisher Species of the World Poster Print

There are about 120 species of kingfisher. They’re found on all continents except for Antarctica. They dwell in a very wide range of natural environments (except for deserts and polar regions) usually not far from a water source. Their name comes of the fact that they are highly adept at catching their primary prey: fish. But there are some species that also feed on amphibians, invertebrates and even other birds and small mammals.
