B-95 Ringed King Fisher Bird
The Ringed Kingfisher is one of the largest kingfishers in the world. They are commonly found along the lower Rio Grande valley in south-eastern most Texas in the United States through Central America to Tierra del Fuego in South America. The Ringed Kingfisher’s loud, machine-gun-like call is often the first alert to its presence.
Some interesting facts: Ringed Kingfishers have been observed eating hummingbirds. They lay their eggs on a layer of fish bones and scales, and When underwater they use their wings as rudders and for rowing. A group of kingfishers are collectively known as a “concentration” and a “relm” of kingfishers.
