The Green Kingfisher is a beautiful dark green bird that can be found in southern Texas in the United States and south throughout Central and South America to central Argentina. They are resident (non-migratory) birds throughout their range.
You may find these small birds perched on a low shaded branch close to water before plunging head in first to catch fish. They breed near streams in forests and mangroves, where they dig horizontal tunnels up to three feet in the river bank.
Green Kingfishers have a large range and their population trend is increasing. They have a conservation status of Least Concern as of September 2014.
