When we get lots of rain around here, I end up with water in the gullies and lovely little swimming holes. So there I am 1 day under the little waterfall in the swimming hole paddling around, and there’s round holes about 2 inches across higher in the gully walls. I wasn’t sure what they were for, but a kingfisher flew straight past my face and deposited a grub in the entrance of the hole. Ah ha, a nest. I love watching them out on a branch, funny bobbing up and down as they are looking for prey over water.
Yes, kingfishers usually dig nest holes with long corridors in river banks.
