The very unique plumage of this bird makes it stand out in the bird world.
These birds, called crested kingfishers, have become extinct. They don’t have to do this cool hairstyle, they are born with it.
The very unique plumage of this bird makes it stand out in the bird world. It looks like someone painted the bird.
Males have orange feathers on their chests, females do not. These birds are native to South Asia.
Crested kingfishers live in the mountains, where you can find small and large rivers, because they hunt fish and crayfish to eat.
They build their nests both on hills and on tree branches. These birds have a special place for incubation of eggs. They dig a mound in a jar and lay their eggs. This task is performed by both males and females.
After laying a few eggs, the females incubate them.
Only after reaching 40 days, parents let the babies live on their own.
These birds are not as big in size, but surprisingly they do not eat fruits or insects like many other birds.
The unique appearance of these birds may tell you that these species live in cold areas, but they only live in tropical forests.
We hope you enjoyed the story about this wonderful bird. It would be so great to see them live.
