Kingfisher in winter weather


Kingfisher catches fish in hole in ice, photo by Arianna

This photo by Arianna from the Netherlands shows a kingfisher catching a fish in a hole in the ice.

Kingfishers don’t like ice, as it makes it harder to find food. Dutch conservationists advocate making holes in the ice to help kingfishers.

2017 was a good nesting year for kingfishers: about 1000-1300 couples in the Netherlands.
