About the Woodland Kingfisher
Also known as: Angola Kingfisher, Blue-and-white Kingfisher, Red-and-black-billed Kingfisher, Senegal Kingfisher

The Woodland Kingfisher is a species of tree kingfisher that can be found in tropical Africa south of the Sahara. Populations near the equator are resident, while outlying populations migrate towards the equator during the dry season.

Woodland Kingfishers are aggressively territorial birds, known to attack intruders, including humans, that dare to enter their territory. These kingfishers can often be seen perching on a dead branch looking for food, which includes insects, snakes, fish and frogs.
