Kingfisher lives mainly in a waterside. The bill is straight and remains still in a stake and a branch keenly and it makes nose dive when it find the fish swimming on the surface of the water and arrest, and there is a habit to come back to the again original branch.
The ruddy kingfisher is generally large size and lives in the forest and eats a frog, a lizard, a fresh water crab, land products shellfish. It is blue-winged kookaburra of the Australian product to be famous for this friend. With size of a small crow, a cry resembles the human laughter with a brown spotted quiet bird. Because it calls in a big voice in forest late in the daybreak and the evening, it is said when it is as a substitute for a thing of a clock for the Bushman of the Australian aborigine.
